International Cooperation

The Danish Council for Strategic Research aims to promote international cooperation

International research cooperation contributes to a high level of research in Denmark. It furthermore serves as a driving force in society as well as develops our ability to compete at an international level.

The Danish Council for Strategic Research therefore wishes to support binding international cooperation between Danish researchers and international research environments. This cooperation will be aimed not just at the rapidly increasing economies of countries such as China and India, but also towards fellow EU countries and other countries which prioritise research.

One of the council's main criteria when selecting potential candidates for funding is therefore the level of binding international cooperation in the project.
