FINLAND HAS LABELLED EURIPIDES²

FUNDING BODY

TEKES is the most important publicly funded expert organisation for research, development and innovation in Finland. 

FUNDING TOOLS

TEKES can fund the Finnish part of EURIPIDES labelled projects. Enterprises based in Finland are eligible for funding for projects that aim to develop products, services, production methods or business concepts. As part of an R&D project, an enterprise may also develop its skills and operating methods.
The share of funding provided by TEKES depends on the research novelty value of the project and the extent of cooperation. Funding granted for the projects of large enterprises may cover 25%, 35% or 50% of the costs, depending on the nature of the project.
