Collaboration

Impact with collaboration

Environmental protection requires collaboration. Nessling Foundation collaborates with several environmental actors and other funding organizations.

Nessling Foundation is a cofounder of the  Forum for Environmental Knowledge, that is funded by Nessling and Kone Foundations. The coordinator of the Forum works in Nessling Nest. The main objective of the Forum is to promote the use of scientific environmental information in societal decision making.

We collaborate with 8 other foundations in the Post Docs in Companies (PoDoCo) program that is  a matchmaking program supporting long term competitiveness and strategic renewal of companies and employment of young doctors in the private sector. Open calls are organized twice a year and Nessling Foundation is funding one young doctor in each call. 

We have been an active member in the Council of Finnish Foundations COFF that represents the interests of 180 grant-providing foundations and funds in Finland. The Council monitors and defends the interests of its members, and serves as a trainer and expert, information provider and discussion forum, supporter and publisher of research.

Our foundation is also enthusiastic in increasing the collaboration with other foundations. For example, during the pasr few years Nessling Foundation has done collaboration in scientific communication and researcher education with Kone Foundation and Kaute Foundation.  

If you have a good idea on collaboration, that would promote environmental research and protection, please let us know! Plese contact Research Director minttu.jaakkola@nessling.fi
