Thanks to the OP Group Research Foundation
I want sincerely thank The OP Group Research Foundation for supporting my desired research topic! The grant distribution occasion was full of warmth. OP is proud of having given a grant to the only Finnish Nobelist in economics and encouraged us to aim high. I am also very thankful to know that the research plan has been read by two to three other specialists than my supervisor and that they found it promising. In the uncertain world of PhD fellow, that means a lot.
Another big joy is the joy for all of our full-time econ PhD students. Saara Vaahtoniemi and Jari-Mikko Meriläinen who each got a grant for one year of research.

Worth mentioning is a person who has inspired many (and 100% of Team Econ Vaasa) to study economics, Matti Pohjola, who held a speak at the event thanking OP for being very responsible in financing research when the government is doing the opposite. Indeed, the concept of OP group research foundation is clearly planned to help young researchers, you can read more from here.
