COWIfonden has decided to spend part of the funds available for donations to support thematic research projects in 2017. Consequently, the Foundation invites applications for thematic research projects, which are suitable for its support. The third round will focus on the following main themes:
Who can apply?
Employees from COWI companies throughout Scandinavia are eligible for applying for support on the condition that the projects are developed and undertaken jointly with universities in Scandinavia.
COWIfonden is looking for project ideas, which are able to meet the following demands:
Projects with a high professional level and significant novelty value holding a long-term perspective beyond the general market and performance development, and which are expected to take place under COWI management. It is a requirement that it is a COWI employee, who submits the project idea. COWIfonden will prioritize projects undertaken jointly with some of the other COWI departments located in more than one of the three Nordic regions. COWIfonden's donations are of a non-profit nature and it is therefore a requirement that the results of the projects are published/made accessible to the public.
For a project idea to become eligible for the preparation of a full project draft, the applicant must document that COWI's management fully supports the project idea before the donation is granted. A statement of support issued by the responsible Regional Vice President will satisfy this requirement.
Project ideas and applications may be prepared in English or any of the Scandinavian languages.
For additional details, please refer to COWIfonden's general requirements and guidelines for project applications, which can be found on COWIfonden's website www.cowifonden.dk.
