You are here: iPSYCH Funding


The Lundbeck Foundation

The Lundbeck Foundation (LuF) has twice decided to fund the iPSYCH project, in 2012, with at that time a record-breaking grant for psychiatric research in Denmark, with 121 million DKK for a three-year period starting 1 March 2012, and in 2015 with a new three-year funding of 120 million DKK.

LuF has been visionary in selecting to support this field of research that will open for huge research opportunities. The research project will combine unique Danish registers and biobanks and is expected to pave the way for better treatment in the future. The project will also have a large impact on clinical psychiatric research in Denmark.

The LuF only wishes to secure the continuous success of the iPSYCH project and that high quality data, results and publications are derived. The iPSYCH project is a cross-functional group effort with a number of milestones and tasks requiring a high-level of coordination and collaboration between many parties and scientists. The LuF intends to follow and support the collaboration, the planning and the work as well as the timely fulfilment of the deliverables. The LuF has no intent to influence the research per se.

LuF Grant number: R155-2014-1724 - Period II: 1 March 2015 - 28 February 2018.

LuF Grant number: R102-A9118 - Period I: 1 March 2012 - 28 February 2015.
