The Lundbeck Foundation is a Danish-based commercial foundation striving to significantly improve people’s health and wellbeing by:

  • supporting independent Danish research at the highest level, primarily within biomedicine and the natural sciences, and promoting the international scope of the research
  • creating shareholder value within the Lundbeck Group and other internationally renowned companies – now including Falck – and helping them become world leaders in their respective fields.
The Lundbeck Foundation was founded in 1954 by Grete Lundbeck, widow of Hans Lundbeck, the founder of the pharmaceutical company H. Lundbeck in 1915.
In 2015, Lundbeckfonden supported health science research, natural science tuition and research communication with grants totalling 59 million euro. The Foundation’s sponsorship covers salaries for 551 scientists and other research staff as well as running costs connected with projects. The largest single recent grant is a three year grant of 16 million euro to the extension of the integrated psychiatric research project iPSYCH involving leading scientists in Europe, USA and Australia. The funds will allow iPSYCH to pursue its pioneering research into the mechanisms behind some of the major psychiatric diseases.
