Information from SOS 19 September 2014
Information from Support Office, Science
The Faculty of Science usually has a high rate of applications in connection with the Danish Council for Independent Research’s autumn call for proposals, meaning that many researchers request support from Support Office, Science almost simultaneously.
Therefore, we kindly ask researchers that plan to apply to any of the coming calls from the Danish Council for Independent Research to advise SOS soonest possible in case application and/or CV guidance is required.
For budget assistance only, SOS must be contacted no later than 10 working days prior to deadline, and preferably earlier than this.

The Novo Nordisk Foundation
Call for applications – Exploratory pre-seed grants.
The goal of an exploratory pre-seed grant is to stimulate entrepreneurship and to explore the potential of research findings at a very early stage (pre-seed), and to prepare the project for a full pre-seed grant at a later stage.
The applicants can be faculty members, researchers and students based at universities, hospitals and other knowledge institutions in the Nordic countries. Normally grants can support activities costing from 100.000-500.000 DKK during a grant period of 4-12 months. Exceptionally additional DKK 200,000 may be allocated for specific commercialization related activities.
Grants may cover expenses related to research activities, salary, equipment, and publications, as well as commercialization-related costs. Funding cannot be used for salary for the applicant. Funding is not available for conferences, travel expenses or indirect overhead expenses.
Deadline: 16. October 2014 at 16:00.
Grants within Biomedicine and Health Science
- PhD stipend (applicant must be one of the responsible mentors, PhD student to be as co-applicant).
- Postdoc Fellowship in Denmark (independent research project or part of a bigger program)
- International Postdoc projects (only for projects taking place outside DK)
- Running costs (for supplemental running costs for research projects, where all costs for salaries have been covered already)
Deadline: 25 November 2014

SDUpro - our new electronic application database at Nat, SDU
Please remember to send your applications to NATapplications@sdu.dk,
at Support Office, Science, for internal registration.
Our original database, Panda, has been replaced by Acadre – but please note, that all researchers still have access to their own applications registered in Panda.
All applications sent to NATapplications@sdu.dk after the 14th of May are registered in Acadre – the address will be announced at some point after the summer holidays 2014.
