About the Council
The Council seeks to ensure that strategic research in Denmark is organised to meet the challenges facing Danish society. The aim is to ensure Denmark’s position as a global frontrunner regarding welfare, wealth and science in the short and long term.
Strategic research must always take place in a problem-oriented context, not a discipline-oriented context. This means that strategic research often spans several disciplines and is carried out in a matrix organisation across public and private-sector institutions where disciplines or subjects are included as required.
Strategic research will usually have a strong international dimension with Danish researchers working closely together with the best international researchers.
Moreover, it is an important objective that strategic research contributes to research education and to ensuring a positive development of the research environments in Denmark.
