Education development


The Finnish National Agency for Education (EDUFI) produces information, provides support, and allocates state subsidies and EU funding for education development. More content to come during 2019.

Information, support and development funding

EDUFI promotes the development of education and the internationalisation of Finnish society.

We support development, experimental and start-up projects in education with government subsidies and advance the internationalisation of Finnish society by coordinating international traineeship, exchange and scholarship programmes.

We are responsible for implementing and providing information about the European Union's programmes in our field in Finland. 

EDUFI is a part of several international information sharing networks that produce information about, for example, education and youth work in different countries.
