Major Funding Boost for Research:
The University of Oulu is set to strengthen its research profile, thanks to a €12 million PROFI funding grant from the Academy of Finland for the period of 2023-2028. This substantial financial backing will be directed towards the university’s notable research areas, specifically focusing on sustainable materials and systems, digitalization, and climate change resilience in northern environments.
Support for Three Key Research Themes:
The funding will support three innovative research themes: Hydrogen Future as a Climate Change Solution (H2Future), Hybrid Intelligence: Human-AI Co-evolution and Learning in Multi-realities (HI), and Frontiers Arctic and Global Resilience (Front). These themes not only build on existing research profile areas but also introduce new multidisciplinary topics, with the university providing matching funding amounting to a total of €24 million.
