The Foundation

The Finnish Foundation for Technology Promotion supports education and research in the field of technology in Finland. Over 60 prominent companies, organisations and persons in the industry and economy founded the foundation in 1949 as part of the Helsinki University of Technology’s centennial celebrations.

The Finnish Foundation for Technology Promotion has always played an important role in supporting technology in Finland. During its history, the foundation has been involved in nationally important research and technology projects, such as the launch of television broadcasting in Finland in the 1950s.
