Calls for mobility grants applications

Mobility grants are awarded for research stays at Danish universities and other research institutions by researchers from selected growth countries – Window 2.

The objective of the mobility grants is to support and strengthen research collaboration and the creation and development of networks between Denmark and selected growth countries. The Danish host institution must apply for the grant on behalf of the visiting researcher. The stay in Denmark can be up to three months.

The eligible countries and themes for mobility grant applications are in line with the annual call for applications for research in the selected growth countries (Window 2) normally announced in October. This implies that mobility grants may be awarded within themes and countries not eligible for Window 2 research grants in the subsequent year.

When a Mobility Grant project has been granted and the Letter of Commitment has been duly signed and returned to DFC, the Disbursement Request Form, Appendix C, must be submitted by e-mail to DFC at research@dfcentre.dk for disbursement of the funds.
