Phase 2 – Only for prequalified applicants
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark (MFA) provides grants for development research activities as part of Denmark’s international development cooperation. While the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by the United Nations in 2015 constitute an overall thematic framework for development cooperation and research, the overall objective of the Danish support to research cooperation is to contribute to new solutions with new knowledge. In accordance with this objective, grants will be awarded to strategic research cooperation which generates new knowledge relevant to the needs and strategies of partner countries, to Denmark’s cooperation with these countries, as well as including substantive elements of research capacity strengthening.
Within this framework, the MFA invites Phase 2 applications for grants related to development research in the Danida priority countries and in growth and transition countries. Phase 2 is the submission of a full application only by those selected (“prequalified”) in Phase 1 in 2020 covering applicants from Danish, Tanzanian, or Ghanaian research institutions. Only applicants prequalified in Phase 1 are invited to submit a full application in Phase 2. Find the lists here: prequalified in Window 1 and prequalified in Window 2.
The total allocation available for both development research funding windows in 2020 is approximately 200 million DKK. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, adjustments may be necessary, such that the overall allocation for 2020 is subject to further approval by the MFA.
