Novo Nordisk Foundation

The Novo Nordisk Foundation’s Data Science Initiative was established to support ambitious research programmes and national infrastructures, boost interdisciplinary collaboration and offer attractive career paths and training of the next generation of data scientists.

The Data Science Initiative was active from 2020-2022 and has been replaced by recurring programmes to support research within data science and computational sciences. Complementary to the open competition programmes, the Novo Nordisk Foundation and VILLUM FONDEN have awarded a combined grant totalling DKK 184.3 million to the Danish Data Science Academy.
