The DNRF’s annual report 2023

The annual report 2023 of the Danish National Research Foundation is now available. You can read the entire report by clicking the link below.

In the report, you can read about the DNRF’s activities and finances, including:

  • 2023 highlights from the foundation (see excerpts below)
  • Status on round 12 of Centers of Excellence
  • New DNRF Chair grants, attracting talents from abroad
  • DNRF Photo Competition 2023

Long-term impact studies show that the first Centers of Excellence have made big scientific breakthroughs of societal importance and have contributed to strengthening the research capacity in Denmark.

Two studies provided us among other things with perspectives on the long-term impact of Centers of Excellence. The studies demonstrate e.g. that the first rounds of Centers of Excellence have been pivotal in building up the today’s Danish capacity in areas such as catalysis/power-to-X, green economics, and quantum science.
