Säätiöiden post doc -pooli (“the Foundations’ Post Doc Pool”) is a grant resource set up by Finnish foundations, all members of the Association of Finnish Foundations, and intended for post-doctoral research abroad from Finland.
The Pool’s aim is to make Finnish research more international by offering young scholars flexible funding from one source that covers all expenses of a research period abroad for at least one academic year.
Säätiöiden post doc -pooli has two application rounds per year. The spring application round takes place in January and the autumn application round in August-September.
The Pool will be continued for the next three-year period, 2022-2024. The Pool will be made up of thirteen foundations which will award altogether 3.25 million euros in grants annually.
The pool grants are intended only for sending researchers abroad from Finland. The pool grants are not intended for subsidizing researchers’ mobility from other countries to Finland.
