The Wihuri Research Institute is a long-term initiative of Jenny and Antti Wihuri Foundation.

The Institute is funded mainly by Jenny and Antti Wihuri Foundation. The funding, which is about 2 million euros per year, is intended as long-term but is subject to reassessment each year. A scientific advisory board of five scientists has been appointed to help the Foundation Board of Trustees with its decision making concerning the Institute.

In addition to the basic funding, research groups of the Institute receive complementary funding from competitive extramural sources, for example, from the Academy of Finland and sources listed on the “Research groups” pages.
