Funding opportunities

Welcome to SOS’ New Colleague, Conny Wang Hansen!

This week we welcomed Conny Wang Hansen as our new colleague in Support Office, Science. Conny came from a position as Head of Section in the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, where she has been involved in all phases of the processing of grant applications and funding of research and development projects during the past 6 years. She has particular experience with
processing applications submitted to “Grønt Udviklings- og Demonstrationsprogram” (GUDP).
The GUDP fond has a strong focus on involvement of private companies in applications for research and development projects.

Besides, Conny has a background as Senior Scientist at Aarhus University, and therefore also experience in writing grant applications for research projects.

In SOS, Conny will be involved in advising about external funding possibilities and providing support on applications aiming at national funds, with specific focus on innovation and public-private collaboration.
