PURPOSE

The objective of this call is to broadly promote Danish clinical or translational research of high international level. The research should involve patients/humans and/or clinical practice, diagnostic or therapeutic methods, but can also involve established animal models.

Additionally, special attention has been put on research on, or relating to, rare diseases (please see section 1.2 in guidelines).

ELIGIBILITY

The research activities applied for must be anchored at a university, hospital or other non-profit research institution in Denmark.

Only principal investigators are eligible to apply.

Applications from Master students, Ph.D. students and postdocs will not be taken into consideration.

FUNDING

A total of DKK 60 million, of which DKK 10 million are earmarked for ‘rare diseases’, is available for the funding of: 1-, 2- and 3-year projects within the frame of DKK 300,000 – 1,000,000 per budget year.

The total amount applied for must be within the frame of DKK 300,000 – 3,000,000.

Please note that applications outside this budget frame will receive an administrative rejection.

RARE DISEASES

There will be a special emphasis during the evaluation on research projects on or relating to rare diseases. Rare diseases are defined as diseases with a prevalence of <5 per 10,000 people. Projects in rare side effects of rare treatment methods will not be taken into consideration – only rare diseases!

Projects on, or relating to, ‘rare diseases’ can, in addition to a clinical or translational research character, also have a more fundamental research character.

The application must be completed and submitted using the foundation’s electronic application system, using the link “Apply”, found at the top of the page.

It is important, that the applicant carefully reads the updated version of “Information and Guidelines for Applicants – Project Grants in Clinical and Translational Medicine 2020” before initiating the application process, as this document contains the complete call as well as detailed instructions for the application process.
