As part of a research communication project focusing on South researchers in Denmark, DDRN organises a public seminar in each of the five university cities, starting on 14 February 2018 in Aalborg. The objective of the seminars is two-fold:
- To communicate research findings by a South researcher (PhD or Postdoc) currently working at a Danish university
- To discuss challenges and outcomes in South-North research cooperation; a panel comprising the South researcher, faculty staff, and other stakeholders will initiate the discussion and invite the audience to comment
