(In Finnish) Ålandsbankenin Itämeriprojektin rahoitushaku 2020 on avattu

Rahoitusta Itämeriprojektilta voivat hakea esimerkiksi yritykset, säätiöt ja konkreettisiin tuloksiin tähtäävät tutkimushankkeet. Hakijan ei tarvitse olla vakiintunut toimija alalla. Tärkeintä on, että toimijalla on vaikuttaviin tuloksiin tähtäävä idea Itämeren tilan parantamiseksi. Startupit ovat vakiinnuttaneet paikkansa Itämeriprojektin rahoituksessa, sillä niillä on usein ennennäkemättömiä ideoita, joilla voidaan vaikuttaa positiivisesti Itämeren tilaan.

Itämeriprojektin vuoden 2020 rahoitushaku alkaa 26.6.2020. Viimeinen hakupäivä on 30. syyskuuta
