The objective of this call is to promote Danish fundamental research at the highest international level within the natural and technical sciences, particularly for projects with potential interdisciplinary applications within life science, health science, or sustainability.
AREAS OF SUPPORT
The call supports fundamental research within many fields of the natural and technical sciences, including – but not limited to – physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, and technical sciences. See more details on support areas in section 1.2 of our guidelines.
The application must describe how the outcome of the project may have potential future applications within life science, health science, or sustainability.
Who: Principal investigators with a minimum 80% affiliation to the administrating Danish research institution are eligible to apply. As this grant cannot cover salary of the grantee, the applicant must be guaranteed his or her own salary for the entire applied project period.
Where: The research activities applied for must be anchored at a university or other non-profit research institution in Denmark.
What: The application must describe a clearly defined research project with an appropriate budget.
Applications from PhD students will not be taken into consideration.
Applicants may apply for between DKK 300,000 and DKK 1 million per budget year for projects with a grant period of 1 – 3 years. Funds can be unevenly distributed over the project period; however, the total budget frame must be within DKK 300,000 – 3 million, correlating with the number of project years. The grant can be extended to 4 years if used to cover a 4-year PhD fellowship, however, with a maximum total budget of DKK 3 million.
A grant capital of DKK 60 million is available in 2022.
