Steno Collaborative Grants Awarded for the First Time

Steno Collaborative Grants Awarded for the First Time

24 Nov 2017

The Novo Nordisk Foundation has awarded the first grants for nine research projects under the Steno Collaborative Grants research programme.

The Steno Collaborative Grants aim to strengthen the collaboration between research environments at the Steno Diabetes Centers and those outside the Centers. The Foundation has therefore emphasized the degree of collaboration between Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen and other research institutions in awarding the grants.

“We want to use the Steno Collaborative Grants to create strong synergy between the Steno Diabetes Centers and other research institutions. Close and strong collaboration is important because we want to disseminate knowledge and exchange experience across research institutions,” says Niels-Henrik von Holstein-Rathlou, Head of Research and Innovation Grants, Novo Nordisk Foundation.

The Foundation is awarding nearly DKK 42 million for the nine projects.
