The HUMpraxis Programme aims to promote collaboration between research in the humanities and practice within its social initiatives, environmental grant area and Transitions and Changes of Adult life.

 

The "human factor" is crucial in accounting for the root causes of, and providing potential solutions to, the major societal challenges. 

By focusing on research in the humanities VELUX FONDEN seeks to promote equal collaborations between researchers and partners within its social initiatives, environmental grant area and Transitions and Changes of Adult life, which are important funding areas in the foundation's philantropic work. 

Professionals from practice will be able to contribute with insight into urgent and difficult issues, conditions of everyday life and the systemic and organisational possibilities and barriers within the three areas. Researchers within the humanities will be able to contribute research-based development of a more profound and extensive insight into the challenges which the areas are facing and may be able to suggest new realisation and solutions to the benefit of society.

VELUX FONDEN wishes to strengthen this social value and make it visible through grants for interdisciplinary and closely integrated research and development projects. We have allocated up to DKK 30 million for grants annually.
