When You Receive A Grant

All applicants are informed in writing about the result of their application. This information will not be given by telephone or e-mail.

The grant may fully meet the amount applied for, or only a portion of it. In some cases, a partial grant may be conditional upon the applicant securing financing of the remaining amount from other sources. The grant may be paid out in a single installment, or in several installments over a period of up to five years. Granted equipment belongs to the recipient’s institution, however, the recipient holds the first right of refusal.

The grant will be published on the Foundation’s website.

Lundbeckfonden expects to be acknowledged in all publications stemming from research funded by the Foundation.


As a grant holder, you must comply with the “General Terms and Conditions for Research Grants”  of the Lundbeck Foundation. There may be special guidelines for specific grants. If so, these will be sent to you.

Please find further information here.

Payment and reporting

The first instalment of the grant will be paid out on request via the electronic application system. If the research grant is a multi-annual grant, further payments are subject to the foundation’s approval of your annual status reports.

As a grant holder, you must submit a scientific report and accounts, at least as detailed as the budget applied for or a later by the foundation approved budget, via the foundation’s electronic application system after expiry of the grant period.

Reports relating to funds for biomedical sciences research are mainly submitted through Researchfish. You can see which type of report you are expected to submit on the report page.

Surplus funds

Lundbeckfonden must be notified immediately if you receive funding from another source for a project that has already received a grant from Lundbeckfonden, and the resulting funding is more than the amount for which you applied. Surplus funds must be repaid to the foundation.

Information and publication

All grants are announced on the foundation’s website.

Lundbeckfonden must be credited in all public information material about projects funded by the foundation. Therefore, it must be clearly stated in all peer-reviewed publications, conference proceedings, press coverage and other communication activities that the project is funded by Lundbeckfonden. If you are interviewed or, for example, talk to the media, you should ensure that it is quite clear that the activity is funded by Lundbeckfonden.
