Research funding
The AU Research Support has developed which is the largest and most advanced online database on national and international funding agencies in Denmark. The database contains the names of approximately 600 funding agencies and the number is expected to rise over the coming years.

Please go to the AUs Research Support website for more information.

Research Professional
Research Professional is an external research funding database which covers an extensive number of national and international funding opportunities within all disciplines. The database is a good supplement to AU’s own research funding database

All employees at AU can access the database. When you have a user profile, it is possible to download, save or share your search results with others at AU.

If you have questions or would like a demonstration of the database, please contact Pernille Hamburger Grøngaard.

At the Ministry of Higher Education and Science website, you can also find lists of research funds:

    Project websites

    You have the opportunity to get a website for your research project. If you order a project website via AU, it will be created in TYPO3 and it will follow the standard AU templates including fonts, navigation bar to the left etc. You can read more and order a project website by following the link below.


    ProMark is a system for time registration. ProMark is used to register working hours that are paid by research projects. Notice that you must use Explorer to open til ProMark.


    All employees at Aarhus University must register research publications in Aarhus University's research database PURE.

    When you register your research in PURE, it is displayed on AU's websites - including your own personal homepage. It can also be searched at Find a researcher, and titles of publications and projects can be 'googled' by colleagues, present and future students and other interested parties.

    Registration in PURE

    You register your publications and activities by sending them to the department secretariat at who will enter them into PURE for you.

    You can read more about what type of publications that must be registered in PURE here.


    When you prepare research applications, it is important that you register the applications in the Research Application system ReAp. It is your responsibility to ensure that your applications are registered.

    Please notice that you still have to email the final applications to the ENG mail inbox for the record system Captia.

    Technical reports

    The Department of Engineering publishes technical reports in four publication series covering each of the four research areas.

    Guide BFI

    In the autumn of 2014, a new website for the Bibliometric Research Indicator (BFI) was launched.

    The BFI system provides an overview of Danish research results, and permits suggestions as to which series and publishers should be included on the authoritative lists.

    As a regular user you can use the website to:

    • Make proposals for the authoritative lists
    • Look up journal titles and publishers that are on the authoritative lists
    • View the annual BFI-result (BFI-points)

    As a member of an expert panel you have the same rights as a regular user . Furthermore, you can use the website to:

    • Participate in assigning levels to the series within the expert panel you are a member of
    • Participate in the validation of proposals to the authoritative list of series

    There are 67 expert panels assigned to the bibliometric research indicator. Members of the expert panels are appointed by The Danish Universities (Danske Universiteter). The expert panels provide scientific advice to the Ministry regarding BFI. The panels provide scientific advice within their respective subject areas. The main task of the panels is the preparation of the authoritative lists of series and publishers. The expert panels must support good scientific practice within their field, and participate in the treatment of proposals for the authoritative list by applying their research professional background.

    The Bibliometric Research Indicator was launched in 2009, and is operated by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science. The purpose of the BFI is to reflect the university’s research activity annually by counting the number of research publications. The result is included in the performance based model for the distribution of a smaller portion of basic funds. BFI rewards research publications published in the most recognised channels within a given research area. It must cover all disciplines and their various publishing traditions.

    If you need support to access the BFI website or if you have any questions for the Bibliometric Research Indicator you can contact:

    The BFI Secretariat: or your local university library.
