The KAUTE Foundation’s general grant application period ended at the end of January 2023. 484 applications were received, which is about 25 percent more than the previous year. The grant amount applied for also increased by around two million euros to a total of 8.5 million euros.
The applications were quite evenly distributed between disciplines: 219 applications came from business sciences, 208 from technical sciences and 57 applications from other disciplines.
“The quality of applications is high and the reviewers will have to work hard to find the best and the most suitable projects from many good ones. The growing number of applications shows that the KAUTE Foundation has an important role among funders of technical and business sciences,” says Executive Director Tuomas Olkku.
Funding decisions will be announced in early May. Thank you to all the applicants!
