AUFF NOVA 2019: 30 mio. kroner til dristige forskningsprojekter

30 forskere har netop modtaget i alt 30 mio. kr. inden for fondens AUFF Nova-program. AUFF NOVA har til formål at stimulere iværksættelse af dristige og nytænkende forskningsprojekter, som har høj kvalitet, men som også typisk vil have vanskeligt ved at opnå støtte fra anden side. De udvalgte projekter anviser nye veje og har potentiale for videnskabeligt gennembrud.

 

Alle bevillinger er givet i fri konkurrence med baggrund i ansøgninger indsendt til fonden. Der var ansøgt for 305 mio. kr., og der var et budget på 30 mio. kr.
