Carlsberg Foundation is one of the world’s oldest industrial 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.
The Carlsberg Foundation grants nearly DKK 300 million to several of Denmark’s outstanding researchers. The Foundation thus continues its strategic objective to support and future-proof conditions for excellent research within natural science, the humanities, and social science.
Climate change and increased population growth are challenging sustainable food production. The Carlsberg Foundation now grants DKK 19.5 million to a new Semper Ardens research project anchored by Carlsberg Research Laboratory, which together with several partners will develop climate-tolerant plants with higher yields and better nutritional value.
A new analysis from the Semper Ardens project HOPE, which measures the population's behavior and attitudes during the corona pandemic, shows that across eight Western democracies, Denmark has the highest number of citizens prepared to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
Researchers around the world risk misjudging both the worst and the best scenarios concerning COVID-19 and other pandemics. A new study supported by the Carlsberg Foundation shows that when societies need to secure public health, it is precisely the extremes that are crucial to understand.
For the first time since 1974, the Carlsberg Foundation Annual Review comes out in English. Dive into readable articles written by the researchers that briefly and concisely introduce the broad spectrum of research supported by the foundation.
Although we have discussed the lack of gender diversity at Danish universities for many years, and previous ministers have tried to overcome this challenge, Denmark still falls behind many of the countries we normally compare ourselves with.
