In 1918 a new university, Åbo Akademi, was founded in Turku -- the only Swedish speaking university in Finland. In 1920 its Finnish-speaking counterpart was established, University of Turku (Turun yliopisto). The chemistry building, built in 1969, is part of Åbo Akademi and its name "Gadolinia" commemorates Gadolin.
