In the 2023 application round for project grants, KAUTE Foundation awarded grants to four projects out of 22 applications. The total amount of funding awarded was 50 000 euros.
The projects aim to support students’ understanding of business in emerging markets, strengthen collaboration between science and industry in the field of electrical energy systems, integrate university-level research into startup activities, and utilize artificial intelligence in the ethical evaluation of digital solution development processes.
The funded projects are:
- The Guild of Industrial Engineering and Management Prodeko’s project focused on emerging markets and sustainable development
- Joint project by LUT University, Aalto University and University of Vaasa to strengthen the collaboration between science and industry in the field of electrical energy systems
- MIMIR Fellows’ program designed to provide an understanding and a tool set for joining and forming spinouts based on university research
- Joint project by Anna Seppänen and working group to utilize artificial intelligence in the ethical evaluation of digital solution development processes.
“The topics of the funded projects are diverse and cover some of the foundation’s key themes,” says Tuomas Olkku, the Executive Director of KAUTE Foundation.
The funded projects are initiatives that do not meet the criteria of KAUTE’s research grants but are otherwise in line with the foundation’s purpose and strategic themes.
