Grants from Gasum Gas Fund for 2022 are open for applications

The energy company Gasum provides grants to researchers every year. Research, technology and innovations play key roles in the journey towards a clean and sustainable Nordic gas ecosystem. The application period for the 2022 year’s grants are open in January 11, 2022 and will end in February 10, 2022.

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 towards sustainable energy production.

Thematic areas supported may be related to, for example:

  • gas-related circular economy (e.g. biogas value chains) and bioeconomy;
  • gas transport and logistics;
  • distributed energy solutions promoting gas use; or
  • gas-based energy storage technologies (such as power-to-gas).

The Gas Fund is one of the special funds run and administered by the Finnish Foundation for Technology Promotion (TES).

Who are grants provided to?

Grants are provided 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 the objective being to provide 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.

Applications addressed to the Gasum Gas Fund are considered by the Fund’s advisory committee. The committee is chaired by Lars Gädda, Dr. Tech., and the other members are Professor Jukka Rintala from Tampere University, Professor Esa Vakkilainen from LUT University, Marianna Jokila from Finnish Foundation for Technology Promotion and Vice President Johan Grön as Gasum representative. In 2021, the Fund gave out 6 grants totaling €63,000. Grants have been provided since 2005.
