Each year, the Lundbeck Foundation receives approximately 2000 applications and awards grants worth around DKK 500 million. All applications are handled in confidentiality.
Applications are assessed by the Foundation’s scientific review panels and external experts. Applications for travel scholarships are processed administratively by the foundation.
Recognised rules 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. In the case of certain programmes, the Board of Trustees has given the panel a mandate to take the final decision. You will receive the decision on your application by email shortly after the deadline.
