Apply for funding

DANfusion has a budget of approximately 250.000 kr for 2021 to June 2023 to support travels in relation to fusion energy research.


The actions funded for 2021-2023 includes the following:

  • Support for PhD and master's students to participate in international summer schools, conferences, and European fusion experiments.

  • Reimbursement of travel expenses for Danish scientists that participate in international fusion projects, conferences, and European fusion experiments.


Application for funding support must be sent to (no deadlines).

The application should contain a clear description of the purpose of the travel, a budget breakdown (e.g. travel, hotel, conference fee), and mention if the applicant has applied for other funding sources.

For larger applications and applications from students, a CV and a description of the relation between the travel and the thesis theme should be submitted with the application.


Applications will be assessed and granted on a first-come-first-served-basis, provided that:

- The aim of the travel fulfills the aims of DANfusion (see above).

- The budget has a reasonable volume compared to the total DANfusion travel budget.

- The applicant is from a DANfusion partner university.

In case the application is outside these guidelines, the board will make a decision to grant or reject the application.


An application budget may be partly granted, and generally applicants are encouraged to seek other sources for supplementary funding. A successful applicant should inform DANfusion if there will be any unused funds from the granted budget, no later than 6 months after receiving the notice of the DANfusion grant.


DANfusion would appreciate a mention in the acknowledgements of thesis or publications, if travel support has been provided to fulfill the aim of the thesis or publication.
