Funding

Basic budget funding for 2009 was 10.3 M€, including the rent of 2.0 M€ of the premises. The resources acquired via the financing of various projects supported both an essential part of the research of the Department and, to a significant extent, its educational program. The Academy of Finland granted about half of the complementary funding, and the rest was acquired from many different sources, the most important of which were the ministries, Tekes, EU, and foundations. Complementary funding contributed 40% to the whole budget of 17.1 M€ of the Department.
