We are grateful to the agencies that fund our research efforts, either directly or indirectly through computer time, traveling grants or support for events. Our main current sponsors are the Academy of Finland, CSC – IT Center for Science, Aalto University and the European Research Council through the HPC-Europa3 program. Below is a list of grants that have been secured by our group.
