The Board of the Aarhus University Research Foundation (AUFF) has decided to redefine the AUFF Starting Grants to AUFF Recruitment Grants in order to promote the strategic recruitment of research talents at AU, including on an international level. The redefinition is also aimed at strengthening the growth segment and the strong research ideas.

This is one of the few modifications to be found on the list of the foundation’s financial instruments in 2022.

Another important grant, AUFF NOVA, will continue and target existing AU employees. Researchers can apply for an AUFF NOVA grant of DKK 500,000 for minor projects. AUFF will also distribute a few NOVA grants of up to DKK 2 million.

You will find links to some of the financial instruments from AUFF below. However, AUFF NOVA will not open for applications until later this year. The deadline for applications will be 15 September 2022.
