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 part of a project or a project in its entirety. The successful projects will be announced in the autumn of 2020.
The Eklund Foundation was created through a donation from the Eklund family, owners of TePe Oral Hygiene Products, in celebration of their long-standing relationship with the professional dental community. The foundation will now distribute grants for the fifth year running.
Projects supported in previous years include studies in periodontology and implantology carried out in different parts of the world – Italy, the Netherlands, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, the UK and the USA. More information on previous grant recipients can be found at the website.
