Innovation Fund Denmark (InnovationsFonden) – The Ministry of Higher Education and Science
Calls for proposals for Industrial PhD projects. An Industrial PhD is an industrially focused 3-year research project and PhD education, conducted jointly by a private sector company (or public institutions), an Industrial PhD candidate and a university. The Industrial PhD candidate is employed by the company and at the same time enrolled at the university. The candidate spends all her/his working time on the research project and PhD education, and divides the working time between the company and university. The company is the formal applicant.
The aim of Industrial PhD Program is:
- To educate researchers at a PhD level with knowledge about industrially focused research and innovation
- To create growth in the Danish business community by increased cooperation on research and innovation between universities and privately held companies
- To facilitate knowledge transfer and networking between Danish companies and researchers at universities in DK and abroad.

Research team looking for partners for research project under MSCA-INT-2014-ETN
A Greek research team is looking for partners for a proposal under H2020 Marie S. Curie (ITN) for a research project on plant resistance to drought. The project aims to develop a multi-partner research and learning network on plant response mechanisms for abiotic stress, focusing on the study of molecular mechanisms with protein proteolytic systems.
The consortium currently contains partners from Greece, Israel, and Britain, and will involve partners from both academic and non-academic sectors.
The plan is to submit a grant proposal for MSCA-ITN-2014-ETN with deadline 13. January 2015. It is therefore urgent to send expressions of interest to Central Denmark EU Office if you are interested in becoming a partner in this team.

The SDU eScience centre
Calls for proposals of PhD projects relevant for eScience. The call is directed to all potential supervisors of PhD students at the Faculty of Science.
The SDU eScience centre offers 1 third co-finance for PhD positions at the Faculty of Science, which can be cumulated with a possible 1 third co-financing from the departments per PhD position. However, at least 1 third of the PhD position should be financed by external funding.
There is a change in policy in that now applications can still be send at any time, but will only be evaluated once a year, during the first week of June by the eScience centre board members. So in practice there now is a deadline, and the next deadline is end of May 2015.
General information to all applicants:
You may find further information about other funding opportunities at our web site under “Funding calendar” and “Calls without deadlines”.
Please remember the Faculty of Science’s internal approval procedures, when applying for external funding: Budgets must be prepared in cooperation with Support Office, Science (SOS), and requests for budget assistance from applicants must be sent to SOS no later than 10 working days before application deadline.
