For the third year running, the Eklund Foundation for Odontological Research and Education will distribute approximately EUR 160,000/MSEK 1.5 to high-quality projects in odontology.
The Eklund Foundation welcomes experimental as well as clinical studies in all fields of dentistry. Projects that can be related to periodontology, implantology, and cariology will be prioritized. The online application portal at eklundfoundation.org is open 1-31 May 2018, and the successful projects will be announced in autumn 2018.
The Eklund Foundation rests on a donation of 50 MSEK by the Eklund family, founders of Swedish oral hygiene company TePe Munhygienprodukter AB. The foundation was established in 2015 with the aim of supporting international research and education within the dental field. EUR 160,000 was distributed to odontological research in 2016 as well as in 2017.
