The Carlsberg Foundation's 'Semper Ardens' Research Project
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.

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.

Kristian Pedersen | The nature of dark energy and dark matter remains one of the most outstanding questions in science today. In order to secure Danish scientists first-hand access to all data in the European space mission Euclid, The Carlsberg Foundation has supported hardware contribution to the mission.

Ole Wæver & Mie Roesdahl | Human rights and peace building have often collided as seemingly incompatible agendas. This research aims to enhance the understanding of the link between human rights and peace building – conflictual and complementary.

Mads Kähler Holst | The large wetland area of Alken Enge in eastern Jutland contains the human remains of a defeated army from the early first century AD. The remains show traces of violent combat and evidence of systematic treatment of the bones of the fallen after they had lain exposed for up to a year, probably on the battlefield.

Peter Teglberg Madsen | 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.

Frans Gregersen | The project Danish Voices in the Americas (2014-2018) describes the Danish language spoken in USA and Argentina in order to illustrate how Danish had varied and what the influence from English and Spanish meant for the Danish language’s development.
