About EURAXESS Denmark

EURAXESS Denmark and its portal give on-line information and practical assistance for researchers coming to Denmark.

A national network has been formed in order to provide researchers coming to Denmark with the best possible assistance. In Denmark there are eight EURAXESS Contact Points that are part of the European network EURAXESS and follow the EURAXESS Declaration of Commitment. All eight Contact Points are placed at universities.

The EURAXESS Contact Points support the staff of their own institution by providing assistance to researchers coming to or leaving the institution. They offer hands-on-support on matters with mainly a local dimension and are often in face-to-face contact with the researchers and/or their families.

Euraxess Denmark has a steering group with representatives from the eight Contact Points, the Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education, and the Danish Agency for Labour Retention and International Recruitment.

The Danish Agency for Science, Technology, and Innovation (Ministry of Higher Education and Science) serves and oversees a wide range of independent councils, commissions and committees which fund, support and advise on research and innovation. The most significant ones are The Danish Council for Independent Research and Innovation Fund Denmark.
