Applications for grants from Eklund Foundation are accepted on the website eklundfoundation.org from 1 to 31 May. Funds of EUR 200,000 have been allocated for distribution in 2020.
Experimental and clinical studies within all fields of dentistry are welcome, though projects that can be related to periodontology, implantology or cariology will be prioritised. Applicants may apply for funding for part of a project or a project in its entirety. The successful projects will be announced in the autumn of 2020.
The Eklund Foundation was created through a donation from the Eklund family, owners of TePe Oral Hygiene Products, in celebration of their long-standing relationship with the professional dental community. The foundation will now distribute grants for the fifth year running.
Projects supported in previous years include, for example, studies in periodontology and implantology carried out in Italy, the Netherlands, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, the UK and the USA.
