13 iNANO associated researchers have been granted DKK 8 million from the Carlsberg Foundation for research infrastructure.

The Carlsberg Foundation has recently awarded 101 grants for research infrastructure. 13 of those grants have been given to iNANO associated researchers.

Research environments rely greatly on having access to relevant advanced equipment and other research infrastructure. "...We find it important to provide researchers with the right setting and the best conditions for delivering the groundbreaking basic research that we as a society need”, says Chairman of the Carlsberg Foundation, Professor Flemming Besenbacher.

The grants will support the acquisition and development of various types of research infrastructure at iNANO or collaborating departments at Aarhus University.

Below you can see the list of iNANO associated researchers, who each have received one of the grants, the amount they will receive and what kind of research infrastructure they will invest in.
