Carlsberg Foundation is one of the world’s oldest commercial 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.

With this Semper Ardens project, I am developing a 2.6 gram data logger that, when mounted on free-flying bats, can record both the emitted, powerful calls and the weak echoes returning to the bats ears, allowing us for the first time to tap into the sensory stream of small mammals in the wild.

Peter Ulf Møller | By publishing for the first time a very substantial portion of the Russian archival records of Bering’s expeditions, our project will shed light on an important, but hitherto underexposed chapter in the history of geographical exploration. It will document Vitus Bering’s position among the greatest explorers of our world.
Tomorrow, on the 205th birthday of brewer J.C. Jacobsen, the Carlsberg Foundation will inaugurate 22 researcher apartments in Carlsberg District. The apartments will accommodate leading Danish and international researchers and the first of these are already moving into the fully furnished homes today.
On 7 September 1962, the world's first man in space, Russian Yuri Gagarin, visited Carlsberg. Among others, he brought his wife with him, and the visit offered both beer tasting, gift giving, a tour of the brewery and a welcome parade in an open vehicle around the Carlsberg site in Valby. | Photo: ESA S.
