The Foundation Forum

The Foundation Forum is a central discussion arena for the University of Helsinki and the foundations that are its key funders and partners. Foundation Forum events are organised once every year. The Forum is hosted by the University’s rector. The latest event was held on March 23rd 2017.

Inform us of your funding application periods

We ask foundations to announce any funding application rounds for researchers and students through the national Aurora database.

The University of Helsinki does not maintain separate lists or databases of ongoing application periods of foundations. If the foundation only grants funding for a specific field, contact the PR & press officer of the unit or discipline in question for supplementary communication channels.
