The Finnish Cultural Foundation will award around EUR 1 million in additional funding earmarked for research focused on nutrition and health in the October 2021 round of applications. Applications will be accepted from the fields of natural sciences, pharmacy, medicine, and agricultural science, as well as from interdisciplinary projects.

Who can Apply

Grant Purposes

The applications may look at the subject of research from different points of view, for example the health effects of nutrition, the connection of nutrition to the origin of different diseases, nutrition and healthy lifestyles, or connections between nutrition and medication.

How to Apply

The research plan to be attached to the application must be submitted either in Finnish or English, but the summary included in the application form must be written in Finnish.
