Alfred Benzon Foundation blev grundlagt i 1952 af Bøje Benzon (1891-1976), dr.scient. og direktør for medicinalvirksomheden Alfred Benzon A/S. Alfred Benzon A/S blev grundlagt i 1863 af Bøje Benzons farfar, Alfred Nicolai Benzon. Den var den første medicinalvirksomhed i Danmark. Bøje Benzon donerede sin del af virksomheden til fonden, der har til formål at støtte lægevidenskab og farmaceutisk videnskab samt relevante naturvidenskaber. Fonden støtter også Københavns Zoo i øjeblikket med donationer til dens forskningslaboratorium. Fonden sponsorerer årligt et internationalt symposium samt en række stipendier med vægt på international udveksling.

Der kan kun ansøges om symposier og workshops i samarbejde med danske videnskabsfolk. Fonden har afholdt 65 symposier og støttet mere end 200 stipendiater, heraf størstedelen med tre årige stipendier. Alfred Benzon Fonden støtter disse virkemidler. Kun online ansøgninger indsendt via disse websider kommer i betragtning. Du finder links til onlineansøgningssystemet under beskrivelsen af hvert virkemiddel. Disse links til ansøgningssystemet bliver aktive, når fonden åbner for ansøgninger.

Symposia:

The Benzon Symposia are international conferences on front line research in medical, pharmaceutical, and related sciences funded by the Alfred Benzon Foundation. The purpose of the symposia is to bring together leading experts within a given field to present and discuss their research and to facilitate interaction between top international scientists and younger scientists.

Benzon Symposium features 20-25 state of the art presentations by invited scientists, shorter oral presentations and poster presentations selected by the organizing committee from abstracts submitted by potential participants, preferentially younger scientists.

Benzon Symposia are awarded by the board of trustees to Danish scientists after application. The symposia are planned and organized by one or more members of the board of trustees of the Foundation in collaboration with the applicants.The symposia are held in Copenhagen. The maximum number of participants is 150 including invited speakers.

Applications from research groups to host the Benzon symposium no. 68 will be considered from April 1st 2022.

Deadline for applications: May 1st, at NOON.

Workshops:

Financial support for workshops are only open to research group based in Denmark

Formålet med de arbejdsmøder, der støttes som Alfred Benzon Workshops er at fremme danske forskeres kontakt med udenlandske kolleger omkring et konkret, videnskabeligt projekt inden for de lægevidenskabelige og farmaceutiske fag og de hermed beslægtede naturvidenskaber. Arbejdsmøderne kan antage mange former men skal afholdes i Danmark.

Ansøgninger kan kun fremsendes af etablerede danske forskere som skal arrangere mødet. Fonden er pragmatisk i afgørelsen af hvilken form et arbejdsmøde antager. Projektets originalitet og ansøgerens kvalifikationer er afgørende. Der kan bevilges op til DKK 50.000. Normalt vil det maksimale antal mødedeltagere være under 10.
