Natural and technical science research and interdisciplinarity
The Novo Nordisk Foundation supports natural and technical science research within such fields as chemistry, physics and information technology. We do this because we recognize that these fields play an increasingly important role in development and advances within health and sustainability.
We also support interdisciplinary research because many major breakthroughs are achieved at the interface between scientific disciplines.
Through our grants, we aim to contribute to improving the opportunities for developing epoch-making solutions within health and sustainability.
The targets for our grants in this area include basic research within the natural and technical sciences, with the potential for interdisciplinary application within biomedicine, health and biotechnology and other research fields especially relevant for research on health and sustainability. We also focus on developing and educating researchers within these fields, especially across the Foundation’s grant areas.
