Research Application

Arla Food for Health announces a call for applications within three focus areas

  1. Prevent/remedy metabolic syndrome
  2. Prevent/remedy malnutrition
  3. Enhance immune defense/response

AFH emphasizes the scientific quality of the research proposed. As the total yearly fund is DKK 10 mill., typically 2-3 projects have received funding. These funds should be seen as seed money, enabling initiation of the work and leading to further funding via e.g. public funding sources. Thus, the content of the application may be seen and described as a phase of a larger and stronger research project.
