Carlsberg Foundation is one of the world’s oldest industrial foundations. Here,
ambitious brewing enterprise blossoms side by side with research and support
for the finest science, art and culture. The Foundation’s Chairman is not just
head of the Carlsberg Foundation, but also Chairman of the Supervisory board of
Carlsberg A/S. It has been this way since 1876, when Brewer J.C. Jacobsen
established the Carlsberg Foundation.
Foundation supports visionary and innovative basic scientific research. Research
that makes us smarter, addresses global challenges, produces growth and welfare,
and is universally beneficial. That is how it has been ever since 1876, when the
Foundation was established by J.C. Jacobsen.
