The Scientific Frontier – conversations with 25 contemporary researchers in Denmark

In the early fall of 2020 The Danish National Research Foundation published the book “The Scientific Frontier – conversations with 25 contemporary researchers in Denmark” (Da. Fortællinger fra Grundforskningens Grænseland – Samtaler med 25 nutidige forskere i Danmark) in collaboration with the Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters. The book is written by Professor Stine Falsig Pedersen, who takes the reader on a journey through 25 portraits of some of the current and previous DNRF heads of centers conducting excellent research in Denmark in 2020 and at the same time provides an insight into what drives them.
