The mission of the foundation is to support initiatives, activities and projects which contribute to maintain, strengthen and develop commercial and cultural relations between Denmark and the Asian countries, where the past commercial engagement of The East Asiatic Company has been prevalent. This is done through direct financial support and activities in Asia House.
EAC Foundation may provide funding for project investigations that aim to create a platform for Danish companies seeking entry to the Asian market. These projects must serve the interest of several stakeholders, and be potentially scalable.
In addition, the Foundation will support initiatives, activities and projects which relate to the history of The East Asiatic Company, thereby preserving the EAC heritage and dissemination of information on its past world-wide commercial and cultural-historical work and engagement.
The Foundation does not give grants to individual students or internships. General humanitarian projects are not covered, unless they aim to strengthen and expand commercial and cultural relations between Denmark and Asia.
We encourage applicants to contact the Foundation’s administration in Asia House to discuss potential applications in order to avoid sending applications that fall outside the mission and scope of the Foundation. The administration can be contacted via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
