Communications and publications guidelines

Public communicating of your research

The Carlsberg Foundation aims at communicating novel research results generated by our grant holders on our website, social media platforms and to the Danish press and public in general. Grant holders are therefore asked to inform the secretariat about the results in due time before the release of a scientific article, monography etc. Relevant information (abstract, article, resume - preferably in Danish) can be sent to
