Apply for financial support for events and conferences

Do you want to arrange something world class? World Class Uppsala believes that events and conferences strengthen Uppsala’s attractiveness. That is why we provide financial support for such types of events. All Light in Uppsala, the O-ring, Uppsala SciFest and Mama Rumba Festival are some examples of appreciated events that have received support from World Class Uppsala.

Financial support from World Class Uppsala can, however, only be obtained under certain conditions. For example, the support must never be part of the basic funding, but is intended to help the event market itself and take the extra step in quality. It is a requirement that the application also includes a project budget where it is clear how the support from World Class Uppsala will be used. We must receive your application at least six months before the event is due to take place.
