A new grant area in VILLUM FONDEN
VILLUM FONDEN was founded in 1971 and has since then funded science and technology research as a core area, primarily through grants for researchers at Danish universities.
The foundation´s board of directors has decided to initiate a new grant area focusing on increasing children and young people´s interest and competence in science and technology. The initiative will strengthen general education within science and technology, which enables children and young people to relate critically and creatively to knowledge and the development in the Danish society. This will, among other things, furthermore ensure continued growth and prosperity in Denmark based on qualified labor with scientific and technological expertise.
Initially, the effort will run for 5-10 years with an annual grant level of DKK 50-100 million.
NB The grant area is not yet open to applications.
Focus on technical and natural sciences since 1971
