Thematic Research - Expert committees

As a part of the political settlement about the research funds for 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 it was decided to grant funding to thematic research in the Independent research Fund Denmark (DFF).

Thematic research - 2022

In 2022, the fund has set up two expert committees to assess the applications and decide on the implementation of thematic funding. The committees consist partly of former/current members from the academic research councils, and partly of international experts within the respective research areas.
