About UniPID Support for Researchers

UniPID connects researchers and institutions engaged with global development within Finland, and to partners around the world. We organize, support and participate in scientific and other events related to global challenges and provide researchers with up-to-date information on research calls and funding opportunities through our mailing list and monthly newsletters.

Support for Doctoral Candidates

We support doctoral candidates based at Finnish universities through UniPID DocNet, which supports the interdisciplinary training and networking of doctoral candidates in development research.

Science Policy

We contribute to national and international research agendas and funding priorities and enhance Finnish participation in international research consortia and policy dialogues through projects funded by the European Commission and national funding parties. UniPID coordinates or participates in a number of projects that offer concrete support for researchers, more information on which can be found from the Projects page.
