Gasum Gas Fund

2019 call is open 10.1.2019-8.2.2019.

Objectives and thematic areas of the Gasum Gas Fund

The Gasum Gas Fund aims to respond to society's transformational challenges by developing energy solutions based on gas and producing information supporting the development of the gas sector.

Thematic areas supported may be related to, for example:

  • gas-related circular economy and bioeconomy;

  • gas transport and logistics;

  • distributed energy solutions promoting gas use; or

  • gas-based energy storage technologies (such as power-to-gas).

Who can apply for grants?

To attain the objectives, grants are provided from the Fund to post-graduate students for doctoral dissertation work. In exceptional cases, funding may also be provided for high-quality Master's theses. Grants are given out for research conducted in Finland, including possible periods of working abroad on the project.

The Gasum Gas Fund aims to support full-time research with full daily allowances. In addition, the Gasum Gas Fund seeks to provide long-term funding to students.

Therefore funding can also be applied for through the Fund in several consecutive years. This, however, requires proof of progress made in the work. Progress must be indicated in the application as well as in the reference letter provided by the advisor or supervisor of the work.

How are applications submitted and assessed?

Applications are submitted via the The Finnish Foundation for Technology Promotion TES portal (in Finnish). Applications can be addressed directly to the Gasum Gas Fund, but TES also aims to direct other applications addressed to TES that are fall within the field of the Gasum Gas Fund for assessment by the Fund.

Applications addressed to the Gasum Gas Fund are considered by the Fund's advisory committee.
