Education development and internationalisation
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.
Support for the internationalisation of higher education
We support international cooperation between institutions of higher education through different nationally and internationally financed funding programmes.
