Each year, Lundbeckfonden receives around 2000 applications and distributes grants totalling approximately DKK 500 million.
Applications are evaluated by the foundation’s Research and Prize Committee or Biomedical Science Panel, or by individual, external reviewers. Applications for travel scholarships are processed administratively by the foundation.
Recognised guidelines for impartiality are observed when evaluating all applications.
Applications relating to biomedical sciences are evaluated based on scientific content, the applicant’s qualifications and the quality of the academic environment at the host institution.
The foundation’s board of trustees makes the final decision on all grants.
