NNF Challenge Programme 2025

Posted on 18.04.2024

The Novo Nordisk Foundation (NNF) is excited to announce the four themes of its Challenge Programme 2025. The Programme addresses some of the major challenges facing society and the planet at large. It has a total budget of DKK 480 million (€64.3 million) and is now open for applications.

The NNF Challenge Programme gives leading researchers the opportunity to assemble strong teams that can develop solutions to major challenges. This year the NNF has expanded the programme to four new themes and a total budget of up to DKK 480 million in 2025. Each successful project applicant will receive a grant of up to DKK 60 million over 6 years.

At DDEA we wish to highlight two of the four themes in the NNF Challenge Programme 2025.

The NNF Grand AI Challenge

The specific challenge of this theme is to develop and use artificial intelligence (AI) as a catalyst for breakthroughs in science, technology, sustainability, and healthcare. The new Gefion supercomputer, dedicated to AI, may serve as a powerful computer platform to tackle this challenge.
