‘We must take measures to promote both the performance and diversity of Swedish-language universities. This is our way of showing how important university education and research are for the Swedish-speaking Finland’, says the Swedish Cultural Foundation’s Chair Mikaela Nylander.

‘We are extremely happy and grateful that the Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland is making a donation to Aalto University under the matched-funding scheme. We will use the funds to support the Swedish-language activities at Aalto, which is an important goal in itself, but it also lays a foundation for enhanced co-operation with the other Nordic universities’, says President of Aalto University Ilkka Niemelä.

‘Participating in the fundraising campaign is a way for us to spend the Cultural Foundation’s money effectively. By supporting universities directly we are also making sure that the state will make public investments in Swedish-language education’, says Mikaela Nylander.

The Government of Finland has decided to support Finnish universities by means of a matched-funding scheme, which means that the state will apply a certain additional coefficient to match each euro that is privately donated to universities between 15 June 2020 and 30 June 2022.
