All meetings are open for anyone interested. Find a list of planned meetings below.

The objective of the Center of Excellence program is to strengthen Danish research by providing the best possible working conditions and organizational set-up for selected top researchers. Excellence is the main criterion when assessing proposals for new centers.

A center grant is large and flexible and has a duration of up to 10 years, with a first funding period of six years and, if renewed, can be extended for a second funding period of additional four years. Centers can be established within and/or across all research areas.
