Aalto University research projects
The university primarily employs its own doctoral candidates for university research projects. Doctoral candidates can work in school's departments or in other research units. Private enterprises often form the second party in research projects. The supervising professor can give more information about research projects in the research field.

Research Funding Database AURORA
The national research funding database for science, art and culture Aurora contains both Finnish and foreign funding opportunities that Finns or researchers living in Finland can apply. The database has been developed and is maintained by the University of Turku. The database lists some 800 funding organisations and new funding opportunities are constantly added on to keep the database up to date. The information on Aurora is collected directly from the funding organisations. The database is available for use free of charge.
National and international research projects
Doctoral candidates may work on large national or international research projects which are related to their research field. Major funding for these projects comes from Tekes – the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation, the Academy of Finland and the European Union. Usually, the accountable project leaders of national and international projects at Aalto are professors, and doctoral candidates would do well to discuss with the accountable professor about taking part in a research project.
