Promoting science and art for almost 50 years
Saastamoinen Foundation works for the benefit of Finnish science and art. We are a notable supporter of art in Finland and an enabler of scientific research. We believe in transparency, internationalisation, expertise, and continuity, and these values shape the support we offer to artists, researchers, art institutions and ground-breaking scientific projects. We are also active in other fields, and strongly support projects aimed at Finnish youth, such as the Yrityskylä societal learning environment and peace-building programme Gutsy Go. We have long-term collaboration with the University of Eastern Finland regarding research of water, neuroscience and forest bioeconomy, and Aalto university regarding the Business of Culture programme, for example. In addition, we have a close relationship with Uniarts Helsinki, supporting their internationalisation programme and art pedagogy research in Fine Arts, as well as with EMMA - Espoo Museum of Modern Art, where the Foundation's art collection is displayed.
