Funding

The Lundbeck Foundation

The Lundbeck Foundation (LuF) has for the third time decided to fund the iPSYCH project, in 2012, with at that time a record-breaking grant for psychiatric research in Denmark, with DKK 121m for a three-year period starting 1 March 2012, in 2015 with a new three-year funding of DKK 120m and in 2018 with another three-year funding of DKK 120m. A total nine-year funding of DKK 361m.

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 fulfillment of the deliverables. The LuF has no intent to influence the research per se.

LuF Grant number: R248-2017-2003 - Period III: 1 March 2018 - 28 February 2021.

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