Funding organisation website


The Foundation supports research that will help accelerate the process of obtaining improved treatments and, ultimately, a cure for diabetes. The intention is to support both young and established researchers and bold ideas that might speed up efforts to solve the mystery surrounding both type 1 and 2 diabetes are particularly welcome.

Researchers in Finland are invited to apply for small grants of up to 50.000 EUR for either basic or clinical research related to the causes, complications or potential cures for diabetes.

Basic and clinical researchers are eligible to apply.
