Bring an Independent Grant to the Pioneer Centre for AI

Featured image

Researchers and students at all levels can propose projects to bring to the Pioneer Centre for AI (P1) via various funding mechanisms. Application and budgets are developed in concert with the research administration at the host institution, which in the case of P1, includes University of Copenhagen, Aarhus University, Aalborg University, the IT University of Copenhagen or the Technical University of Denmark.

Deadlines vary. Requesting institutional approval should be started about 2 months prior to the fund’s application deadline. For larger, complex grants, 3+ months (and sometimes more) is advised. The host institution will provide budget guidelines and application support.

If you are already a researcher employed at one of P1’s institutions, follow carefully your institution’s instructions for funding applications. Contact COO Michelle Løkkegaard to discuss any P1 co-funding, co-location, or in-kind request, and/or if you would like application support, contact to an extra reviewer, or letter of support. 

If you are not currently employed at a Danish institution, get in contact with COO Michelle Løkkegaard for advice and referral to the right faculty sponsor (if needed) and to identify the administrative contacts at one of the P1 institutions you hope to serve as host for the project.
