Apply for a grant for your project

It takes resources to create something out of the ordinary. Our World Class Uppsala network consists of about twenty of the city’s leading organizations and companies that together want to make a concrete difference – for us who live and work in Uppsala. And for people who want to come here and grow with us.

For eleven years, we have had the pleasure of providing financial support for events that put Uppsala on the map. Over SEK 40 million, spread over 200 events. Events that resonate both nationally and around the world. Since 2020, we also support socially beneficial initiatives. The purpose is to create faith in the future, community, and pride for Uppsala.


You want to create something good.
Together we can create something world-class.
