Our grants

At the LEO Foundation, we believe that through our grants we are able to make a significant contribution to advancing and promoting dermatological research worldwide – research that may otherwise find it difficult to attract funds, especially in competition with other, more high-profile medical specialties.

The LEO Foundation supports international dermatological research projects and activities that address issues in disease understanding, disease treatment, disease awareness and patient wellbeing. Typical projects and activities are international research projects, scientific symposia, science-based knowledge dissemination, and awareness campaigns.

The Foundation furthermore awards, on an annual basis and in collaboration with international dermatology societies, young dermatology researchers a Gold Award (DKK 1,000,000 or EUR 130,000) and a Silver Award (DKK 500,000 or EUR 65,000).
