Grant info



Kone Foundation’s next grant application round will take place between the 1st and 15th of September 2020. What do bold initiatives in art and research look like? How do you transfer your idea for a project onto paper? What kinds of projects will be funded in this year's theme-based application round? The grant info session on Thursday 28 May is an opportunity to learn about the grant application process this coming autumn and hear about a grantee’s experiences.

Time and place: Thursday 28 May 1–2.30 p.m., live-streamed on Kone Foundation’s Facebook page  

At the first grant info session this year, you will learn about the general grant application round of the coming autumn, the application round for residencies at Lauttasaari Manor and the theme-based application round organised this year, which will focus on Russia and the Finno-Russian relations from the point of view of the environment and sustainable development.

Kone Foundation’s Executive Director Anna Talasniemi will talk about the Foundation’s grants and the residencies of the Lauttasaari Manor, while Director of Research Kalle Korhonen will talk about how the Foundation supports research and about the theme-based application process. In addition, the Foundation’s grantee Freek van der Vet will discuss his projects on Russia and his experiences as a grant applicant and grantee within the theme-based application process. During the event, members of the public will be able to ask questions in the comment field of the Facebook live stream or on Twitter. The questions will be answered after the talks.

The event will be held partly in Finnish and partly in English.
