Prizes and grants

Research at DTU is largely based on external financing — partly through national and international public funding and partly through donations from companies.

To be part of the international elite, it is vital to attract funding that can contribute to the development of research activities and help attract international research talents.

DTU receives funding for various research projects from the European Research Council (ERC), which supports high-quality research in Europe.
