Instructions for KAUTE’s grant recipients regarding the coronavirus

The coronavirus affects the work of some of KAUTE’s grant recipients. Four our part, we are striving to be flexible so that the grants can be used for their original purpose to the greatest extent possible.

Working and expense grants

KAUTE shall, without requiring separate notice, grant an additional period of six months for the grants to be used for their intended purpose and for the submission of grant usage reports. This applies to those grant recipients whose work plans are affected by the coronavirus due to, for example, travel or international cooperation.

Travel grants

The primary aim for travel grants affected by the coronavirus is for them to be used later, once the situation has normalised. If your travel time or destination changes, please inform the foundation in good time.

Grants for researcher visits interrupted due to the coronavirus will not be reclaimed by the foundation. The same applies to the Tutkijat maailmalle and Fulbright KAUTE Foundation Award grants funded by KAUTE.

Ongoing calls for grant applications

The ongoing Tutkijat maailmalle and Post Docs in Companies programmes’ calls for grant applications will continue as planned. Both calls will end on 15 April 2020.
