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 and new approaches, and to increase the countries’ capacity for creating and applying new knowledge themselves. 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 2019 covering applicants from Danish, Tanzanian, or Ghanaian research institutions.
