Lundbeckfonden's vision is to create a better life through new knowledge. The aim of the foundation’s grants is to make a significant contribution towards increasing the quality and the usability of all research-based knowledge and experience gained in the field of biomedical 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.


Lundbeckfonden fellowships are granted to outstanding and promising young researchers who are establishing or expanding their own research groups at Danish research institutions. This applies both to Danish researchers and to researchers from abroad who wish to move to Denmark and continue their research here. The invitation is also open to applicants from Danish universities and university hospitals. The fellowships are intended for researchers who have received their PhD degree within the last five to seven years and are qualified to establish or develop their own research groups.


The application should concern biomedicine, or science with a clear biomedical perspective. We grant support for frontline basic or applied biomedical research within the scope of Lundbeckfonden’s grant strategy, which is available at www.lundbeckfonden.com.

Fellowships are awarded for five years and each fellowship amounts to DKK 10 million (approx. EUR 1.3 million).
