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 2018-19. 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

Presentations and key points from the discussion will be published on DDRN.dk. The research communication project is funded by the Ministry of Higher Education and Science.
