Research Leader Programme

Research Leader Programme

The Novo Nordisk Foundation has allocated DKK 2.4 billion (€322 million) for its Research Leader Programme aimed at excellent research leaders at different stages of their careers.

Up to 48 grants of up to DKK 10 million each are awarded each year. The 5-year grants are awarded within four scientific fields:

  • endocrinology and metabolic research;
  • biotechnology-based synthesis and production research;
  • clinical and translational research; and
  • bioscience and basic biomedical research.

The grants are awarded based on applications submitted in open competition. Calls for applications are typically open in late fall with deadlines in January.
