The University of Oulu helps with its expertise

The donations received by the University of Oulu and the matched funding by the state have played an important role in the development of the university's profiling and in supporting related top projects. We have been able to create a new, sustainable financial instrument to support our key research and key recruitments. The new matched funding period from 15 June 2020 to 30 June 2022 will further increase the effectiveness of donations to the university.

Finland and the whole world are facing a huge challenge due to the coronavirus pandemic.  The need for reliable research information on the subject is high. The University of Oulu is well equipped to participate in a joint effort to combat the global pandemic through high-level research work. Several research groups on different fields at the University of Oulu are contributing to find solutions to the corona pandemic.  The university’s researchers have also come up with many new research openings amid the corona outbreak. By donating, you can support our researchers and their work.
