|ARLA FOOD FOR HEALTH 2020 FUNDING DECISION|
|We received 10 applications for funding in Arla Food for Health in 2020. All 10 applications were scored above good by the external Scientific Advisory Board. The Arla Food for Health Steering Committee decided to fund Special Milk Lipids for Improving Metabolic Health (SMiL) lead by Maximillian Kleinert with 5.2 mill DKK.
Two Principal Investigators were asked to resubmit their applications to compete for the remaining 4.8 mill DKK because the Arla Food for Health Steering Committee assessed the projects as of high potential. Unfortunately, the Arla Food for Health Steering Committee decided not to fund neither of the two re-submitted projects. One project was still too close to an already ongoing study from which they had been asked to differentiate and the other project did not come up with a project plan securing sufficient power to test the hypothesis. The 4.8 mill DKK will be transferred for future funding.
|ARLA FOOD FOR HEALTH CALL 2021|
