Novo Nordisk Foundation

The Novo Nordisk Foundation is one of the largest foundations in the world. With the vision to improve the lives of people through better health, education and the development of a knowledge-based sustainable society the Foundation are engaged in numerous new initiatives and projects. Also the Foundation awards grants across many different areas and facilitates events and symposia.

The Foundation needed a new corporate website giving many different types of users from all over the world easy access to the specific information they need. The web design in line with the existing design guide was developed inhouse.

Data structured and organised

Every year Novo Nordisk Foundation awards hundreds of grants and prizes, publishes news and supports many projects. A large part of the data on the website like news, events and open grants was structured in databases and then automatically published in the right format. This gives the users an immediate overview and the opportunity to easily filter and search the data. Diving into the site the users can e.g. find info about the many grants awarded by the Foundation dating 15 years back.

WordPress as a solid foundation

This comprehensive website for one of the world’s largest foundations was appropriately build in WordPress, the world’s most used CMS. WordPress is flexible, open-source and offers a large library of plug-ins for different tasks. No wonder its popularity is growing. For Novo Nordisk Foundation we designed a user-friendly backend making it uncomplicated to customise webpages with pre-designed banners, maintain and update all content.

Solution

One of the largest foundations in the world, the Novo Nordisk Foundation, got a new website build in WordPress presenting a plethora of data in an easy accessible way for the many users. Also easy for Novo Nordisk Foundation to maintain and update content and send out newsletters in an automated process.
