Fudan Centre

Fudan Nordic Centre in Shanghai

The Kone Foundation offers annually two 4-6-month scholarships for conducting research in China. The Fudan Nordic Centre in Shanghai provides office space for those awarded the scholarship. The Nordic Centre in Shanghai is a joint-venture between Fudan University and Universities from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. One of its main tasks includes acting as a platform for initiating and developing research and educational programmes.

The Finnish member universities are the University of Helsinki, the University of Eastern Finland, Hanken School of Economics, the University of Lapland, the University of Tampere and the University of Turku.

The scholarship programme is intended to support and expand China-related research conducted in the Finnish universities. The aim is to stimulate researchers to expand their research focus towards research connected with China and to make longer research periods in China possible for them. The main purpose of the scholarship is to enable the awardee to carry out his/her research work in China. When possible and relevant, a doctoral candidate can attend teaching offered by the Fudan Nordic Centre.
