The main focus of the evaluation was mainly concerned with the evolution of its funding instruments, the appropriateness of its selection processes, the interaction with universities and other stakeholders, as well as governance, organisational structures, and the management of DFF.

The evaluation concludes that DFF is playing a key role in the Danish research funding system and succeeds in supporting the brightest minds and most talented young researchers.  

The evaluation is based on a bibliometric study, a self-evaluation report by DFF, desk studies and not least numerous interviews with several researchers and major stakeholders in the research community.
