The foundations' post doc pool is a grant resource set up by eight Finnish foundations and intended for postdoctoral research abroad.

The aim of the post doc pool is to make Finnish science more international by offering young researchers flexible funding that covers all expenses of a research period abroad of at least one academic year (9 months).

It is no longer possible to seek a grant for postdoctoral research abroad from the Finnish Cultural Foundation's Central Fund.
