The Danish National Research Foundation has joined the following general principles/protocols, which should be enforced by the grant holders – if relevant to the centers’ research activities:
Joint European funding principles for research involving animals
This means that grant holders are obliged to focus on animal welfare if the research activities involve the use of laboratory animals.
The Nogoya Protocol
This implies that grant holders should share the benefits arising from the utilization of genetic resources in a fair and equitable way.
