In the spring funds are granted to Postdoctoral Fellowships for research abroad (up to DKK 4 M per grant) and Emerging, Ascending and Distinguished Investigator grants (up to DKK 10 M per grant). In the Fall Project grants are awarded (up to DKK 3 M per grant).
The Committee on Bioscience and Basic Biomedicine was established in 2017, and consists of a chair and 12 members.
