Congratulations to all of the recipients of funding from Independent Research Fund Denmark

The list of successful applicants of funding from Independent Research Fund Denmark has been revealed and iNANO affiliated researchers receive a good share of the DKK 750 million awarded for excellent research. See the list here.

The Independent Research Fund Denmark (Danmarks Frie Forskningsfond, DFF) allocates funding for research based on criteria for a high level of excellence and originality in the research projects. With their strategy they aim to ensure that new knowledge of the highest scientific quality is created and spread in society and is effective nationally as well as internationally. 

DFF awards fundings via five academic research councils, and most often iNANO researchers have received funding from the Research Council for Nature and Universe (FNU) and the Research Council for Technology and Production (FTP).
