Report this content

€220,000 in research support – that is the total sum allocated by the Board of Eklund Foundation in 2021. In May, the application portal is open for researchers within all fields of dentistry and from all parts of the world for the sixth year running.

Both experimental and clinical studies within all fields of dentistry are welcome, but projects that can be related to periodontology, implantology, or cariology will be prioritised. Researchers may apply for funding for a project in its entirety, or for part of a project.

Even though the application period runs from 1 to 31 May, the application form can be previewed at the Eklund Foundation website, eklundfoundation.org, all year round. The Board will announce the successful projects in September.

The Eklund family, owners of TePe Oral Hygiene products, created the Eklund Foundation in celebration of their long-standing relationship with the professional dental community. Since 2016, the foundation has distributed €140,000-200,000 annually, supporting odontological research worldwide – teams in Italy, France, The Netherlands, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, the UK and the USA are among the recipients. More information on previous grant recipients and their studies can be found at the website.
