VILLUM FONDEN wish to strengthen interdisciplinary research in Denmark with a initiative focusing on the interdisciplinary field of data driven science.
Compelling evidence shows that interdisciplinary research is markedly more effective at leading to ground-breaking results than monodisciplinary research. Digitalisation, artificial intelligence and big data calls for new collaborations that combine expertise within computer science with other research areas.
The time frame is up to two years for initiation project grants and three to five years for full project grants.
Approval of grant
The duration will be approx. six to eight months from application to grant.
The application process
Proposals that meet the condition are evaluated on the basis of scientific excellence. The proposals are assessed by a scientific committee and approved by the board of VILLUM FONDEN. For proposals for large grants that proceed from the committee's initial assessment, the process will include an external written peer review followed by and interview with the scientific committee.
Call: Villum Synergy
Application deadline is : 21 February 2024, 2 PM.
