FACE - Fund for Academic Cooperation and Exchange between Denmark and the Arab World




The FACE-programme is established as a pilot engagement under the Danish-Arab Partnership Programme (DAPP) to support academic cooperation between Denmark and the MENA region. Danish institutions that have entered into collaboration with partners from the MENA region can apply for funding for academic partnership projects. FACE supports two types of grants:


  • Large grants (between DKK 50,000 and DKK 2,000,000 per year) announced through a Call for Proposals. FACE has to date completed two Call for Proposals. New Call for Proposals are not envisaged at the moment.


  • Small grants (up to DKK 50,000) for e.g. academic exchange visits, organizing of conferences, seminars and meetings, etc. Applications for small grants can be submitted on a continous basis until 1 March 2017.


Applications must be submitted using the format found on this website to the FACE Secretariat by e-mail to the following address: fundsecretary@face-programme.dk


Funded projects must be completed no later than June 2017.
