___________________________________________


 

All 10 fellowships are funded by the Danish foundations, TrygFonden, Realdania and Novo Nordisk Fonden based on the respective societal themes each foundation represents.


For five fellowships, applicants can submit proposals for projects that address significant societal challenges within TrygFonden's core areas: Security, health and well-being in Denmark. These may include, for example, education, mental health, disease prevention, crime prevention, road safety, loneliness among vulnerable people and general societally related problems.


For three of the fellowships offered, applicants can submit proposals for projects that deal with the development and the media coverage of three issues within some of Realdania's societal focus areas: climate challenges and the development of our cities, vulnerable residential areas in major cities and geographical peripheral areas in Denmark.


Applicants who are particularly interested in health conditions can submit proposals for projects that are either about health care priorities or disseminating research results as well as ethics in connection with new forms of treatment. These are fellowships Novo Nordisk Foundation has committed to support.


Applicants are welcome to propose projects within the above-mentioned themes in their applications.
