Given the important role of research in the natural and technical sciences and how it contributes to advances in biomedicine and biotechnology, the Foundation will increase its focus on natural and technical science research and interdisciplinarity in the 2019–2023 strategy. Since interdisciplinary scientific research plays an increasingly important part in driving new discoveries, the Foundation can advance its mission by supporting a strong interdisciplinary research basis in Denmark.
The Foundation’s activities will focus on:
- Basic natural and technical science research with potential interdisciplinary application to biomedicine, health sciences or biotechnology
- Selected other research fields that are potentially relevant to biomedicine, health sciences or biotechnology
- Training programmes and methods related to natural and technical science research and interdisciplinarity
