JUHO VAINIO FOUNDATION INVITES GRANT APPLICATIONS FOR 2022
The Juho Vainio Foundation distributes grants for scientific research and activities that promote public health and healthy lifestyles, especially health-promoting physical activity and nutrition, prevention of health hazards caused by smoking and the use of alcohol, as well as the promotion of mental health and environmental health (including prevention of health hazards in buildings).
The Foundations grants are personal grants, post-doc researcher grants, and project grants to research/working groups. The personal grants are typically EUR 11.250 for a 6-month working period or EUR 22.500 for a one-year working period, but a continuation grant may be awarded if applied.
The Foundation may award grants for health promotion activities, provided that a scientific study and/or an evaluation of the project’s effectiveness and benefits are included.
Grants for 2022 may also be directed to studies or projects about the pandemic’s effects on lifestyles and health literacy and their combined impacts with environmental factors on the risk of illness.
The Foundation also awards one or more large grants for the year 2022. The purpose of a large grant is to support a significant and comprehensive research project or a health promotion project that lasts for one or more years. If he/she wishes, the recipient of a large grant may also apply for a one-year project grant in the same application round in case no large grant is awarded.
The application period for all the grants awarded for the year 2022 is September 2021, 1.9.-30.9.2021. The application period ends on Thursday, 30.9. at 24 o’clock.
The application must be submitted in the grant system, link found at the Foundation’s website. The application or a part of it may be submitted in English. The Foundation does not accept applications in any other form, and applications delivered after the application period will not be considered.
Detailed instructions for applicants and further information are available on the foundation’s website at www.juhovainionsaatio.fi.
