Foundation-based Aalto University
The Aalto University is a foundation based university. The capital of the university foundation was formed by donations of at least EUR 700 million. This capital was accumulated in stages between 2008-2010 by a Government donation of EUR 500 million and donations of at least EUR 200 million from Finnish industries and other financiers.
The capital and the profits it generates will be of central importance to the new University in reaching its targets. Profits gained from the capital will enable the University to execute its strategy and provides Aalto University with better preconditions for long-spanning basic research.
