Metsä Group has made donations of EUR 160,000 to Tampere University and five other Finnish universities. Depending on the university, the donations will be allocated to the fields of technology, natural sciences, or agriculture and forestry.

−High-quality university research and education form the basis for the development of the forest industry as a whole. It’s very important for us to secure future competence, says Ilkka Hämälä, President and CEO of Metsä Group.

The donations are part of the matched funding scheme, through which the Government supports donations made to universities by private foundations, companies and individuals. The matched funding scheme will run until the end of June 2022.
