Kone Foundation’s goal is to advance bold initiatives in research and the arts. It is an independent and unaffiliated organisation, which awards grants to promote academic research, culture, art and the popularisation of research, maintains the Saari Residence for artists and researchers and organises various events. Kone Foundation has supported IHME financially since 2015.


Saastamoinen Foundation has firmly anchored itself in Finnish society by promoting the work of actors in the fields of science and art, and by networking both in Finland and internationally. Saastamoinen Foundation supports IHME Helsinki in 2020-22.
