In addition, one grant is interdisciplinary between DFF | Medical Sciences and DFF | Technology and Production Sciences.

The grants are awarded within the framework of the Danish Council for Independent Research’s E2016 and F2017 call, with the aim of providing researchers in Denmark the best possible conditions for producing outstanding research results at a high international level based on their own initative. 

Grant and rejection letters will be forwarded to all applicants as soon as possible.

Please be advised that the Council cannot be held responsible for printing errors and reserves the right to make budgetary adjustments. A very limited number of applicants have been admitted to a waiting list and they will be contacted directly.
