The VILLUM Young Investigator Programme
"The Villum Foundation aims to support with this programme early career researchers with ambitions of creating their own, independent research identity, and with the potential to significantly contribute to research in technical and natural sciences at a Danish research institution."
Who can apply?
The ideal applicant is an exceptionally talented young researcher within technical and natural sciences. Applicants must have between two and eight years of research experience after completion of their PhD. You may apply a total of two times for a Villum Young Investigator grant.
The programme is announced once a year in open competition, with an application deadline in June, and a final decision in December.
Researchers currently employed by a Danish university can apply for a maximum of DKK 6 million, including 15% for indirect costs. Researchers currently employed by a university outside Denmark - and have been so for at least two of the past three years at the time of application - can apply for a maximum of DKK 8 million, including 15% for indirect costs.
The duration of the grant is five years.
