The National Danish Research Foundation was established in 1991 with 2 bil. DKK in capital. In 2008 and in 2015 an additional 3 bn. DKK were supplied, thus ensuring the foundation’s continuation until the end of 2036.

Since the first distribution of funds in 1993, the foundation has supported Danish research with 8 bil. DKK. As of 2010 the annual funding amounts to 400 mil. DKK on average, which corresponds to about 2% of the total public research funding.
