Criteria for Hedorf’s Foundation’s project funding

Hedorf’s Foundation provides financial support for projects and competence development that promote innovation in transport and trade, prioritizing development projects that modernize and upgrade education, research and knowledge sharing within logistics and transport.

Focus areas

This is in order to enhance and standardize training paths across organizations, including supporting career paths in the public education system, from basic education to master level.


In the future, the foundation wants to encourage students in existing education programs to complete their academy programs and support the diploma programs in freight transport, where the academy level is a prerequisite. The foundation has previously supported the development of these activities.


Support to attract and retain good and relevant teachers and support the development of teaching materials and/or textbooks.


Implementation of selected research and analysis tasks (defined in whole or in part by the Foundation).


Grants for education and research activities with a documented project related to freight transportation.


Support for PhD projects with a focus on freight transport or educational programs related to the transport industry.


Support for projects that the Foundation may find interesting and that fall within the charter.
