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, the New Carlsberg Foundation and the Tuborg Foundation are targeting extraordinary grants that can mobilize and support researchers, art museums and civil society in the scientific, economic and human efforts at a time when society is challenged by the COVID-19 epidemic.
As the first Danish foundation, the Carlsberg Foundation has decided to reimburse additional costs to the universities when a research fellow supported by the foundation takes maternity leave.
Due to the corona crisis, the Carlsberg Foundation generally approves project and deadline extensions made necessary by COVID-19. See the below message from Carlsberg Foundation chairman, Professor Flemming Besenbacher.
As a direct result of the spread of the Corona virus and the acute health crisis in Denmark and the rest of the world, the Carlsberg Foundation is grants DKK 25 million to a new Semper Ardens project to investigate behavior in both the public space and on social media.
The Carlsberg Foundation provides emergency research funding for the development of methods for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of SARS-CoV-2 infections. The research will provide new, important knowledge about viruses and their properties and equip the world to better cope with future viral epidemics which potentially could be the cause of even more deaths followed by social and economic disaster than what we are witnessing at the moment with the current pandemic.
Since January 2020 the ongoing Corona pandemic has thrown the world into a deep health crisis. The Carlsberg Foundation therefore grants DKK 10 million to a new Semper Ardens project for the development of mathematical models to predict the potential development of future epidemics. Professor Lone Simonsen at Roskilde University will lead this Semper Ardens project.
