Centres of excellence
These grants aim to strengthen Danish research by supporting the creation of centres of excellence that provide the best possible working conditions and organisational set-up for selected researchers across all research areas, including humanities, life sciences, natural sciences, social sciences and technical sciences. Centres of excellence consist of units based at research institutions sharing a common idea or vision, and an overall and clearly defined set of research objectives.
Applications may be for proposed centres whose proposed leader must work full-time for the centre. Co-applicants must devote a specified percentage of their time to the centre. Centres are encouraged to form partnerships with other researchers or institutions in Denmark or abroad.
