Application instructions

The application period runs from 1 to 31 January every year. Grant applications must be submitted to the Foundation no later than on 31 January. In that case, the application must be signed digitally by both the applicant and the director.

The application is carried out electronically using Visma Sign forms. The form does not have the possibility for saving, but you can print the form in advance to familiarize yourself with it. You may prefer Microsoft Edge as a browser.

The form is signed digitally by both the applicant and the director of the place of performance. But if the research has a hospital permit, the application is signed by the signatory of the permit. The applicant fills in the form with the name of the director of the place of performance or the signatory of the hospital's permit, as well as his/her email address and/or mobile phone number.

The other signatory field opens when you click "Add signer" on the form.

Either online banking codes or MobileID’s are required for a digital signature. If these are not available, you can contact the representative of the foundation so that the application can be signed in another way.

When the applicant has signed the application digitally, it is sent to be signed by director of the place of performance. Both will receive information about the signature in their email. The application remains in these persons' own VismaSign archive for 30 days. For data security reasons, the application copy will not be sent to e-mail.

After the signatures, the application is transferred to the electronic archive of the foundation's VismaSign service for processing.

Other instructions

An applicant may only apply for a personal grant for their own personal use. A research team leader may apply for a grant for the team to be paid out as salary, but a personal grant cannot be further awarded to a team member.
You can only apply for a travel grant for a specific congress and an awarded travel grant cannot be transferred to another congress. A travel grant for a single event may not be awarded to more than one applicant on each research team. No unused travel grant money may be used for other purposes; instead, the latter half of an awarded travel grant will only be payable upon submission of a report, a poster (or an abstract) and receipts. Receipts must provide evidence of payments made. The report should include a bill of costs.
Each application form can only be used to apply for one type of grant. If you are applying both for a research grant and a travel grant, for example, you should fill in a separate application for each one. If you only intend to start using the grant between 1 January and 30 April in the year following the year of application, please indicate this clearly in the ‘Purpose of grant’ section of your application. As a general rule, you should start using the grant during the year of the award.

We will not return any applications.

After you have received a decision on awarding a grant, we will ask you to provide your payment details. Once you have used the grant, you are required to report on its use within 3 months. Please report the use of a previous grant before applying a new one.

Please, notice: Write your application concisely, focusing on the essentials: what makes this specific research special and meritorious. The space available is limited and we no longer require any attachments.

In the event of any problems, you can turn to the Representative of the Foundation for help by calling +358 400 824 438 or by sending an e-mail to saatio(at)parkinsonsaatio.fi.
