The objective of this call is to promote Danish fundamental research at the highest international level within the natural and technical sciences, particularly for projects with potential interdisciplinary applications within life science, health science, or sustainability.

Areas of support

The call supports fundamental research within many fields of the natural and technical sciences, including – but not limited to – physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, and technical sciences. See more details on support areas in our guidelines.

The application must describe how the outcome of the project may have potential future applications within life science, health science, or sustainability.


Who: Principal investigators with a minimum 80% affiliation to the administrating Danish research institution are eligible to apply. As this grant cannot cover salary of the grantee, the applicant must be guaranteed his or her own salary for the entire applied project period.

Where: The research activities applied for must be anchored at a university or other non-profit research institution in Denmark.

What: The application must describe a clearly defined research project with an appropriate budget.

Applications from PhD students will not be taken into consideration.
