Founding a new organization

Can’t find your favorite hobby or activity from among the student organizations on campus? You can always found your own organization or association. Founding an organization or association involves thorough planning and a certain amount of red tape. The Finnish patent and registration office has all the necessary information. Organizations operating within VYY are also eligible for project support.
