The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Denmark to start accepting applications for development research grants

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Government of Denmark beginning mid-October will start accepting applications for grants for development research in developing countries in 2012. These grants aim at generating new knowledge as well as strengthening research capacity to promote Danish development cooperation for poverty reduction and sustainable development in developing countries.

The grant distribution process is administered by Danida Fellowship Centre (DFC) that was founded in 1990. DFC is located at Hostrupsvej in Frederiksberg in central Copenhagen and is managing the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ development research grant process since July 2008.
Research Projects

Research projects should be carried out as collaborative research between Danish and South-based research institutions with a priority on institutions in Africa. Individual Ph.D. and postdoc grants can only be supported if included into applications for research collaborative projects within the current call for applications.

Research Themes
In 2012, following 4 research themes are prioritised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs because of their relevance for development cooperation:
        Health issues relevant to primary health care
        Inclusive economic growth, employment, and youth
        Good governance, human rights, conflict and fragility

Climate change, energy, sustainable management of natural resources and urban areas
