Fortum and Neste Foundation

The Foundation’s purpose is to support research, education and development in natural, technical and economic sciences within the energy sector. In particular, we anticipate receiving applications related to climate change mitigation, emission reductions in energy systems, flexibility and customer-centered solutions, new alternatives for transport, as well as bio-economy and circular economy topics. Structural renewal according to the principles of sustainable development, interdisciplinarity and solutions exceeding sectorial boundaries are also essential themes.

To fulfil its purpose, the Foundation can award grants, honorary awards or other such financial means to economically support actions relating to meeting its objective, and carry out communications and publication activities. Multi-annual grant may also be accepted as a fixed-sum commitment for clearly-defined purposes.
