Krimelte, a producer of joint sealants and construction foams that imports approximately 95% of its produce, and Tartu University Foundation announced a grant aimed at the support of gaining education and pursuing scientific work in the field of chemistry.

The grant is open for application to all master’s candidates of the field of chemistry in the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Tartu.

“We have enjoyed many years of successful cooperation with the University of Tartu and the initiation of this grant programme is a natural continuation of our fruitful joint endeavours,” Alar Salum, the managing director of Krimelte, comments on the new grant fund.
