Projects with main applicants from the partnering universities can apply for funding through Plant2Food. Due to the rules and regulations of the Novo Nordisk Foundation, which funds the Plant2Food platform, the grant cannot be allocated to for-profit organisations. This means that private companies cannot be beneficiaries of our grants, but they can participate in both our community and projects without requirements for membership fees or cash contributions.
Plant2Food’s governing bodies can allocate up to 102 M DKK for research projects within the initiative’s first three years (funds for call rounds in the second period will be released upon a positive midterm assessment).
The governing bodies will use the first call round in 2023 to determine the precise distribution of funding across the years depending on the incoming applications.
