The Novo Nordisk Foundation announces the fourth annual Call for applications for NNF Laureate Research Grants. Also for 2015, the NNF is pleased to announce the first Call for applications for a new Novo Nordisk Foundation grant type, the NNF Young Investigator Award.
NNF Young Investigator Awards and Laureate Research Grants are for outstanding scientists to come to Denmark to build their groundbreaking research programs. The purpose of these grants is to support internationally leading biomedical and biotechnological research by providing substantial and long-term support. Researchers located anywhere outside of Denmark can establish their labs at any public or non-profit research institution in Denmark.
Up to two grants for both Young Investigator Awards and Laureate Research Grants will be awarded in 2015.
