DFF-Research Project Grants from the Danish Council for Independent Research| Medical Sciences, June 2015

The Danish Council for Independent Research | Medical Sciences awards 64 DFF-Research Project Grants to researchers in Denmark to the sum of approximately DKK 157 million. The grant recipients are listed below.

The grants are awarded within the framework of the Danish Council for Independent Research’s E2014 and F2015 call, with the aim of providing researchers in Denmark the best possible conditions for producing outstanding research results at a high international level.

Grant letters will be forwarded to the recipients as soon as possible. Rejection letters will include a brief text, explaining the main academic reasons for the project not obtaining a grant.

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