To advance the quality of Danish research, DFF offers funding for research projects within an economic framework of up to DKK 2.000.000, excluding overhead. A DFF-Research Project1 is characterised by having a clear and well-defined research question, where the research activities are expected to be of a high, international level of quality. The duration of a DFF-Research Project1 is typically 3 years, but it is possible to apply for a 4-year project if a PhD student is involved in the project.
The applicant must be able to document independent research experience typically corresponding to three years or more after having obtained a PhD degree (or similar qualifications). Your previous results will be assessed in relation to your career path (see section 4.3.4 and section 4.3.6), and in relation to the scientific challenges of the project applied for. If the applicant is not an associate professor and has not been awarded a positive associate professor assessment (“lektorbedømmelse”) and the project involves the education of researchers, it must be stated in the application how the relevant supervision will be provided, and how the scientific connection of the research students to the project will be ensured.
