The Carlsberg Foundation supports the procurement of research infrastructure, i.e. the purchase of equipment, register data and databases as well as the establishment of corpora and development of research tools.

The applicant must be a tenured associate professor/senior researcher or professor, affiliated to a Danish research institution.

There is no maximum to the amount applied for.

Please see overview of Research Infrastructure grants for the period 2019 to 2021.

The application must be submitted in English.

Peer review

For applications with an amount exceeding DKK 3 million, each full application is sent to three high-level international experts within the relevant scientific area(s) for external peer review.

Each reviewer will be asked to assess the applications according to the Carlsberg Foundation’s ‘Assessment Criteria for Reviewers’.

Reviewers will be asked to declare a possible conflict of interest. If a conflict is identified, the reviewer will not be used.

The peer reviews will serve as an important input to the board’s decision, but it is the board that makes the final decision.

Applicants will not get the opportunity to comment on the reviews prior to the board’s final decision.
