External funding

We try to facilitate the process of applying for external funding as much as possible.

The following persons may assist you when you want to apply for external funding:

External funding coordinator Professor Helena Skyt Nielsen, who has the expertise in e.g. sharpening the application.

AU Research Support Office: Anne Marie Zwergius (2845 5016, amz@au.dk) - she may help you with the budget and all formalities so that your application meets all requirements.

If you do not know where you should address your questions, you may always ask Lene Bavnbek Enevoldsen.

All applications have to be signed by the head of department. If you do not need to discuss the application with the head of department, you can give the application to Anne la Cour and she will collect the signature.

If your application includes reduction of your teaching load, the head of department will have to approve this reduction, otherwise you cannot expect the reduction to be realized even though you receive the funding. 

Internal review panel

The Department’s internal review panel offers review of department members' funding applications to The Independent Research Fund Denmark (DFF) and The Carlsberg Foundation.

In order to give sufficient time for commenting and revising, the panel will accept your applications for DFF until 14 September 2018 and for The Carlsberg Foundation until 10 September.

The review panel consists of the following persons:

Please send pdf files of your project description and other documents you want the panel to look at (budgets etc.) to Helena Skyt Nielsen: hnielsen@econ.au.dk

Before submitting your files to the review panel, please make sure to read the two documents “Common mistakes in writing grant applications” and “Check list for applicants”, which can be found under Employee forum in the menu to the left.
