The Carlsberg Foundation's 'Semper Ardens' Research Project
How does personalised medicine bring digital and corporeal manifestations of the individual person — the “me” — into the world? Which groups and collectives — which “we”s — are at the centre of personalised medicine? In her Semper Ardens project, MeInWe, Professor Mette Nordahl Svendsen investigates the intertwining of person and the collective in personalised medicine.
Quinoa was utilized as a food source by the Incas and is now recognized as probably the healthiest grain crop. Quinoa withstands extreme conditions of drought and salinity and therefore stands out as a crop already adapted to climate change. The mechanism by which quinoa is tolerant to salt stress is being investigated in this project.
The Carlsberg Foundation Semper Ardens research project ‘Activating Arctic Heritage’ explores two recently appointed UNESCO World Cultural Heritage properties in West Greenland. The research focuses on creating new knowledge on the cultural history of the UNESCO areas by combining archaeological, historical and scientific studies of Inuit and Norse sites from c. 1000 – 1900 AD - a period including drastic environmental and cultural changes.
Do robots, disruption and globalisation really equal doomsday scenarios of mass unemployment and growing inequality? Or do we simply not know enough about the forces and adjustments that new technologies and international commerce trigger in our market economies? By using register data, research can revise our understanding of industry dynamics.
A new Internet infrastructure is being designed with potentially deep impact on our society, challenging our economic institutions, data sharing and digital interaction. Key to ensure a smooth transition is to understand the interaction of the basic building blocks of the technology. As issues of infrastructure design and market design are delicately intertwined, this calls for collaboration between computer scientists and economists.
In 2003, we discovered that DNA of past plant and animal communities can be retrieved from permafrost and cave sediments spanning 400,000 years. This finding gave birth to the field of ancient environmental DNA, that has since grown to encompass many different research topics, experimental methods and computational tools. Today, we are looking to apply the ancient environmental DNA approach to uncover the genetic basis of rice resilience to environmental stressors, a key question for addressing food security challenge in a changing world.

Fine huse, flot kunsthåndværk, forfædrekult og mystiske sko i en grav – bare én meter under jordens overflade. Carlsbergfondets Semper Ardens-projekt ”Finding Old Sikyon” har siden 2015 deltaget i lokaliseringen og undersøgelserne af den arkaisk-klassiske by Sikyon med et væld af forskellige arkæologiske, geofysiske og geoarkæologiske metoder.
The Carlsberg Foundation's 'Semper Ardens' Fellowships within the Humanities and Social Sciences | 21/06/2019
By Jesper Ryberg | Can it be justified to use neuroscientific technologies for influencing the human functioning brain as a means of preventing offenders from engaging in future criminal conduct? With the support from the Carlsberg Foundation it has been possible for the first time to provide a comprehensive analysis of the various ethical challenges surrounding this question.
