To advance the quality of, and develop collaboration within Danish research, DFF offers funding for research projects carried out by multiple researchers (including postdoctoral candidates and PhD students) of up to 4.5 years in duration within a budget framework of DKK 2.200.000 to DKK 4.300.000, excluding overhead. A DFF-Research Project2 is often characterised by a coordinated and mutually binding collaboration featuring a well-defined, joint research question. However, it may also be a project formulated by a single researcher, which is to be carried out in a research team, when it can be argued that the project is particularly ambitious and resource demanding, and that the research objective cannot be obtained through a DFF-Research Project1. The research activities must have the potential to create synergy among any sub-projects, involve an international level of collaboration (if relevant) and be of a high, international standard.
You must be able to document independent research experience at a high, international level typically corresponding to five years or more after having obtained a PhD degree (or similar qualifications). Your previous results will be assessed in relation to your career path 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.
