About DFF | Humanities
The Council covers basic research within all branches of culture, aesthetics, languages, history, and theory of cognition.
The Council allocates research grants to researchers working within these areas. Furthermore, the Council provides scientific advice in relation to humanistic issues. The advice is given according to request or on the Council's own initiative.
The Danish Council for Independent Research annually publishes a call inviting researchers to apply for funding for research activities within the scientific areas of the Council. The call includes information about requirements and guidelines for applications to The Danish Council for Independent Research | Humanities.
The Council’s 12 members are acknowledged researchers appointed by the Minister for Science, Innovation and Higher Education in their own personal capacity.
