What is Aurora Database?

On Aurora database you can search for Finnish funding opportunities in sciences and arts, for both project funding and personal grants. The database lists funding of over 400 organisations and new funding opportunities are constantly added on to keep the database up to date. The information on Aurora is collected directly from the funding organisations.

The database is available for use free of charge. Users should verify all information from the funding organisations e.g. through their websites which will also provide more detailed application information.

The Aurora services are produced by the University of Turku. The funding for Aurora comes from Universities Finland UNIFI , Arene  and the Council of Finnish Foundations.
