The Lundbeck Foundation awards Postdoctoral fellowships for free and independent biomedical, clinical and health sciences research of the highest standard.

The term ‘biomedical and health science’ is used here in its broadest sense, since there are many adjacent fields of research which, traditionally, belong to other classical faculties (particularly natural science and technical science) but, to an increasing extent, help steer the field of biomedicine towards new breakthroughs in knowledge and treatment. Consequently, research in technical and natural sciences with subject matter that addresses biomedical and health issues is treated as biomedical and health science research.

The Foundation encourages and supports international collaboration between researchers through the sharing of experience and ideas and therefore prioritises support for postdocs who wish to spend part or most of their time in international research groups.

You can apply for grants for two to three years.

The purpose of Lundbeck Foundation Collaborative Projects is to develop and support the Danish research environment within neuroscience. We welcome you to propose scientific issues which can only be resolved through integrated, interdisciplinary and collaborative efforts. With this programme we aim to create synergy between neuroscience and other research fields or between different subfields of neuroscience.  The ambition is to foster collaborations that will significantly impact neuroscience and have potential implications for human health. The grants are intended to add significant value to the existing research environments.

The research should be related to basic or clinical neuroscience, or science with clear relevance to neuroscience. The term ‘neuroscience’ is used here in its broadest sense, and thus includes medical, technical, natural and social sciences as well as humanities. In rare cases, and only after dialogue with the applicant, the Foundation will accept applications from outside the field of neuroscience.

You can apply for up to DKK 60 million for a period of five years.

Lundbeckfonden’s stipends for sabbatical leave for research in biomedical sciences

Lundbeckfonden awards stipends for sabbatical leave for Danish-based researchers in clinical, translational and basic biomedical sciences with a minimum 5-year tenure at the same Danish university, university hospital or other research institution as associate professor, consultant, senior researcher or professor. The aim of the stipend is to ensure that research directors are able to focus fully on their research during a consecutive period of secondment at a foreign institution.

Lundbeckfonden funds each stipend with a maximum of DKK 500,000. The secondment abroad must be for a duration of two to six months, as secondments of shorter or longer duration will not be subsidised.

The application must include a description of the applicant’s scientific qualifications, including a CV and list of publications, a research plan for the secondment abroad, a budget and a statement explaining how the sabbatical may help strengthen the research at the applicant’s Danish institution/department. The applicant must be able to be released from his or her duties (teaching, clinic, laboratory work, etc., but not PhD supervision) during the period. The application must include a statement by the applicant’s superior on the terms of the sabbatical leave and an acceptance by the institution to be visited.

You apply via the Foundation’s application system and applications will be processed within 3-4 weeks.

Opens Summer 2020

Announcement: March 2020

The Brain Prize 10 million DKK (approx. 1,3 million €) is a personal research prize awarded annually by the Lundbeck Foundation. The Brain Prize is awarded to one or more scientists, who have distinguished themselves by an outstanding contribution to neuroscience and who are still active in research. The Brain Prize recognises highly original and influential advances in any area of brain research, defined as research on any aspects of the brain and the nervous system in health and disease. It is a broad research field, encompassing a wide range of disciplines from basic neuroscience to applied clinical research aimed at producing new scientific knowledge on aetiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment and prophylaxis of diseases affecting the brain and the nervous system. If several researchers have contributed significantly to this achievement, more than one individual may be nominated. Nominees can be of any nationality. Only nominated candidates will be considered by the Selection Committee. The rewarded research must – in an international perspective – be outstanding. It is the task of the Selection Committee to decide in each individual case, what characterizes the research as outstanding and therefore deserves the prize. Prize winners are expected to interact with Danish brain researchers e.g. through lectures, conferences, site-visits or other activities agreed with and financially supported by the Lundbeck Foundation.

Lundbeck Foundation’s vision is to create better lives through new knowledge. We wish our grants to make a significant contribution to increasing research-based knowledge and experience in the field of biomedical and health sciences in Denmark. At the same time, our grants must help ensure that Denmark always has the best graduates and scientists at all career levels in these fields. Lundbeck Foundation believes that diversity strengthens science and for this reason diversity, including, but not limited to, gender and ethnic origin, is encouraged. It is therefore important that we receive applications from as many qualified scientists as possible, from all backgrounds.

The purpose of this grant instrument is to support extraordinary research ideas that challenge the norms and prevailing ideas within the fields of biomedical, clinical or health science. We are seeking unique, high-risk ideas which may have a limited chance of succeeding but which have great potential to transform our understanding of an important research field if they do. 

You can apply for up to DKK 2 million for a period of up to two years.

Lundbeckfonden announces a new partnership with NIH, formalized by a letter of agreement. Both Lundbeckfonden and NIH believe that the ambitious goals of the BRAIN Initiative can best be attained by collaboration across disciplinary boundaries as well as geographic boundaries. The new partnership will allow researchers at Danish institutions to join ongoing as well as new BRAIN Initiative projects.

Supplemental Funding
Researchers at Danish institutions who are interested in participating in NIH BRAIN Initiative funded projects should contact the principal investigator of the NIH award to inquire if there is mutual interest in collaboration. If this is the case, a PI from a Danish institution can contact Lundbeckfonden for advice on how to apply for funding of the part of the project that will be performed in Denmark.

Matching Funding
In most of the NIH BRAIN Initiative Funding Opportunity Announcements, institutions outside the USA can participate either by submitting applications directly or as subcontractors in an application from an US institution. Researchers at Danish institutions who submit applications in either role in NIH BRAIN Initiative awards should contact Lundbeckfonden as the application is submitted to NIH if they are interested in having the award potentially co-funded by NIH BRAIN Initiative and Lundbeckfonden.

Upon establishing the Young Investigator Prize in 2001 for a particularly promising scientist under the age of 40, the Foundation’s Research and Prize Committee noted that a large number of nominated researchers that were under the age of 30, already had made remarkable research contributions. Consequently, the Board of Trustees decided to award talent prizes to up to three particularly talented young scientists under the age of 30. The LF Talent Prize was inaugurated in 2002.

The LF Talent Prize is dedicated to scientists under the age of 30, who have conducted particularly promising research within biomedical sciences. The recipients must be conducting research at a Danish research institution at the time of the award. The prize is DKK 500.000. The amount is split between a personal prize of DKK 150,000 and DKK 350.000 towards research activities.

Nominations are accepted from leading scientists at Danish universities or other research institutions. Hence the prize cannot be applied for by the nominee. Previous nominees may be re-nominated as long as they still meet the criteria.
