Lars Buchhave | One of the greatest questions in the history of mankind is whether life exists elsewhere in the Universe. Astonishingly, a clear path towards resolving this question has recently emerged. Recent advances field of exoplanets have revealed an astounding prevalence of Earth-like planets, allowing us to discover and characterise temperate Earth-like exoplanets around the closest and thus brightest stars.

Jan J. Enghild | As the human population continues to grow, an increase of the global food production while simultaneously shrinking the agriculture’s environmental footprint is desirable. The goal of Jan J. Enghild's Propotato-project is to convert the current side-stream of potato starch production into a high-value protein product useful for human nutrition. The Carlsberg Foundation has supported the project with essential research infrastructure.

Søren Handberg | The Kalydon Archaeological Project aims to investigate the history of the ancient Greek city of Kalydon in Aitolia in western Greece through archaeological fieldwork. Danish archaeological work in the city began back in the 1920s, and since 2011 the Carlsberg Foundation has supported the continuation of the joint Danish-Greek explorations of the city.

Christian Janfelt | The Carlsberg Foundation Research Infrastructure Grant has contributed to establishing mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) as a research field in Denmark. The MSI instrumentation has been – and continues to be – used in research projects within pharmacology, drug delivery and plant biology. MSI contributes with highly detailed information about the spatial distribution of compounds, which cannot be obtained by conventional techniques such as liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS).

Birger Lindberg Møller | To carry out the project, key expertise within bioinformatics was established at the Carlsberg Research Laboratory by new recruitments. Gene sequencing and bioinformatics enable monitoring of the genetic changes introduced in the barley genome as a result of random mutations that may have resulted in the recruitment of new functions or loss of functions. The project has contributed to such an improved barley genome sequence as recently published in Nature.

Rikke Louise Meyer | This project aims to understand how the conformation of human proteins like fibrinogen and fibronectin affects the way bacteria interact with them. This knowledge is the basis of design and development of new implant materials that direct protein conformations to prevent bacterial attachment but promote tissue integration.

Kasper Møller Hansen & Rune Stubager | The Danish national election in 2015 was the temporary culmination of a new emerging political landscape on at least three dimensions: a political, a social and a geographical.

More than five millennia ago, a dual set of inventions would transform society radically and mark the first transition from prehistory into the historical era; the development of the hieroglyphic script alongside the use of ink and papyrus in Egypt and the development of the cuneiform script and writing tablets of clay in Mesopotamia.
