Communications and publications guidelines

The Carlsberg Foundation wants to spread knowledge of research and science to the general public. Therefore, we encourage our grant holders to disseminate or otherwise communicate their projects.

Communicating your research

On our communication channels, we disseminate selected projects supported by the Carlsberg Foundation. We are therefore happy to receive information from our grant holders when significant research results suited for dissemination are published in books or scientific journals, or when other projects with support from the Carlsberg Foundation are released. Relevant information such as abstract, article, monograph, press material, time of publication etc. can be sent to cfgrant@carlsbergfoundation.dk. We will then – based on our formats, platforms, and target groups – assess whether the material is suitable for dissemination.

All projects with support from the Carlsberg Foundation will appear in our grants overview

In connection with general communication, dissemination and contact with the media, we encourage you to state that your project is supported by the Carlsberg Foundation.

In connection with communication on social media, we encourage you to tag @Carlsbergfondet so that we can support the messages. The Carlsberg Foundation is present on Facebook, X, Instagram and LinkedIn.

In connection with publication in scientific journals, etc. please state under Acknowledgments that your research has been supported by the Carlsberg Foundation.
