Carlsberg Foundation is one of the world’s oldest enterprise foundations. Here,
ambitious brewing enterprise blossoms side by side with research and support
for the finest science, art and culture. Since 1977, the Chairman of the
Carlsberg Foundations has also been Chairman of the Supervisory Board of
Carlsberg A/S. From 2022 the Chair of the Foundation has become the Deputy
Chair of the Supervisory Board of Carlsberg A/S.
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.
For the first time ever, the Carlsberg Foundation awards a multi-million amount in Danish kroner for initiatives aimed at communicating knowledge of research and science to a broad audience in Denmark. The grants are awarded on the basis of two open calls for applications announced by the foundation in May this year. Altogether, 27 projects will be receiving just over DKK 21 million in funding.
The Carlsberg Foundation and the other major private research-funding foundations in Denmark have come to an important agreement with Universities Denmark on covering indirect costs for the research projects they fund. In the light of this agreement, the Carlsberg Foundation has decided to increase its total annual funding for Danish research by an estimated DKK 85 million.
With two open calls, the Carlsberg Foundation is inviting researchers and professional communicators to apply for funding for science communication. The funds are being offered through Carlsberg Mindelegat, which is open to researchers with an affiliation to a Danish research institution, and the Science Communication instrument, which is open to professional communicators. The application deadline is 1 March 2024.
Literary historian Anne-Marie Mai and macroecologist Jens-Christian Svenning have been awarded the Carlsberg Foundation’s Research Prizes for 2023. The prizes were presented by Danish Minister for Education and Research Christina Egelund, President of the Danish Royal Academy of Sciences and Letters Marie Louise Nosch and Carlsberg Foundation Chair Majken Schultz in a ceremony at the New Carlsberg Glyptotek.
With the autumn call 2023, the Carlsberg Foundation is offering funding in open competition for both the growth layer and professor level of the Danish research landscape. Take a look at our funding instruments and submit your application by 1 October 2023.
The Carlsberg Foundation awards almost DKK 17 million to 18 postdoctoral researchers for research stays at international universities and research institutions with the aim of strengthening opportunities to build international collaborations and networks to the benefit of their future career and for Danish research in general.
