How to apply

Every year in June Independent Research Fund Denmark publishes a Call for Proposals, in which all funding instruments for independent research are listed as well as application deadlines and requirements to be met by applicants.

If you wish to apply for funding of an original research idea, you first have to find the funding instrument suitable for your project. In the current DFF Call for Proposals or under the section Overivew of instruments you will find the possibilities.

Write your application in e-grant

When you have found the proper funding instrument for your research idea, and found out whether you fulfil the requirements in the call, you can start writing you application. This is always done in the web portal e-grant. First you must register as user and chose the funding instrument. In DFF’s Call for Proposals you will find guidelines on how to use e-grant.
