All Taike grants can be applied for electronically using our e-services. Please note that our e-services cannot be accessed on mobile devices.
Read the call for applications carefully before filling in an application. The call for applications includes details about the terms, application period and what attachments to include with your application.
The connection will time out automatically after 30 minutes if the service is not used. Remember to save your work regularly. All information that you have saved will be retained despite the connection timeout.
To access our e-services, first you must log in. For this you will need one of the following:
- Personal eBanking identifiers (Finnish)
- Personal mobile certificate
- Personal electronic ID card
Taike's online services work best with the following browser versions:
- Mozilla Firefox, version 52 or later
- Google Chrome, version 70 or later
- Edge Chromium
If you are a new customer, the "Omat tiedot" (Personal details) page will open automatically after logging in. Fill in the requested information, after which it will be stored in Taike’s customer register.
If you have used Taike's online services before, the "Avoimet haut" (Open calls for applications) page will open after logging in. Check your contact information on the "Omat tiedot" (Personal details) page before filling in a new application. You can then return to the "Avoimet haut" (Open calls for applications) page.
You can store two addresses in the customer register, one for Finland and one for a foreign residence, if necessary. The country of residence setting determines which one is used.
Include your preferred bank account number on the "Omat tiedot" (Personal details) page and it will be stored in Taike's customer register, so every time you fill in a new application it will be included automatically. Note, however, that changing your bank details on an application will not automatically change your bank details on the "Omat tiedot" (Personal details) page.
If your bank details change, remember to update the information on the "Omat tiedot" (Personal details) page. This will not affect applications that have already been sent or processed. If you would like to change your bank details for applications that have been approved, please contact Taike’s customer service.
The system does not yet accept foreign bank details, so if you have access only to a foreign bank account, please contact Taike’s customer service.
Grants are not paid to the accounts of associations, cooperatives, companies, foundations or other communities, so do not include any such accounts on your application.
You can also include separate bank details on each application. In this case, the bank details you provide on the application shall be used only for payments related to that specific application and will not affect the bank details stored in Taike's customer register and used for other payments.
It is possible to authorise another person to act on your behalf on Taike’s e-services. Electronic authorisations can be obtained using the online Suomi.fi service, where you can also manage all your mandates.
Personal customers of Taike require only one mandate: Applying for subsidies and maintaining information (Valtion avustusten hakeminen ja tietojen ylläpito). This mandate allows the assignee to prepare applications for discretionary government transfers and measures related to the transfers, submit them for processing, withdraw an application and maintain information related to the assignor on behalf of the assignor. Please note that you are responsible for keeping your mandates up to date.
Before authorising someone to act on your behalf, read the instructions carefully on the Suomi.fi website.
If you are applying for a grant as a working group (this applies only to project grants), the application should be made by the contact person for the working group.
The contact person of the working group can fill in an application using their own eBanking identifiers on Taike’s e-services. The contact person must include in the application the names and dates of birth of the other members of the working group. The contact person must also include a CV for each member of the working group or a summary of the CVs of all members.
Each member of the working group is responsible for how the grant funds are spent and for providing clarification. The contact person for the working group is responsible for submitting the clarification by the deadline.
Working grants (including artist grants, regional working grants, library grants and public display grants) are not awarded to working groups.
Open calls for applications are listed on the "Avoimet haut" (Open calls for applications) page under “Alueelliset apurahat ja avustukset” (Regional grants and subsidies) and “Valtakunnalliset apurahat ja avustukset” (State grants and subsidies). If you have logged in to Taike’s e-services as a personal customer, you will see only grants for individuals and working groups.
Begin a new application from the "Avoimet haut" (Open calls for applications) page. Choose the grant you want to apply for and select "Tee uusi hakemus" (New application). Then select the language in which you prefer to apply (Finnish or Swedish). The default language is the same as the one that you used to log in with.
On the first page of the application you will see your personal details as stored in the customer register. If you would like to update your information, go to the "Omat tiedot" (Personal details) page. You can then return to the application from the "Omat hakemukset" (My applications) page under "Keskeneräiset" (Drafts).
Remember to save each page before you proceed to the next page.

Taike is a government agency, and the grant decisions we make are public. For example, the media is entitled to obtain information about all grant recipients.
Taike does not disclose confidential information. Matters related to a person's privacy, for example contact information and matters related to health and financial situation, are always confidential. Work plans are also confidential to the extent that they contain information considered to be business secrets, such as artistic ideas.
Taike submits information about all grant decisions for publication on the tutkiavustuksia.fi website (Act on Discretionary Government Grants 688/2001 and Government Decree 1394/2022). Applicants can choose when applying whether they consent to the publication of the decision on the Taike website. The submission of decision information to the Tutkiavustuksia.fi service cannot be refused, however, even if the applicant has not given consent to the publication of their name on the Taike website.
If you consent to having your decision published on the Taike website and have entered your artist name on your application, your artist name will be published in connection with your official name.
When you have sent your application, it is added to the "Lähetetyt" (Sent) page. You will be notified by e-mail when your application has been entered into the system.

The maximum number of attachments is five and the maximum size for each attachment is 4 MB. You will be informed by e-mail when the changes have been entered into the system.
