Coronacrisis bulletin for The Foundation for Economic Education grantees

The difficulties caused to researchers by the coronavirus pandemic will be alleviated by providing flexibility in the implementation of grant projects.

The Foundation for Economic Education acts to assist grant recipients when, as a result of the corona pandemic, many researchers have to cancel their research visits or attend conferences.

In an exceptional social situation, we have shown flexibility to grant recipients and instructed us to propose an alternative way to use the grant awarded if exceptional circumstances prevent the project from being implemented in the form in which the grant was awarded.

We will also not recover grants awarded for this year if the trips or participations booked with them have been canceled due to the coronavirus situation.

If your situation so requires, please contact the Fund’s office: apurahat@lsr.fi.
