VELUX FONDEN’s pilot project Writers-in-residence aims to promote the interplay between the humanities and artistic endeavour, and strengthen Danish literature. Now eight talented writers are receiving fellowships to write in university environments
VELUX FONDEN grants DKK 7 million for a new project to help newly arrived quota refugees and generate overall knowledge about their inclusion in Danish communities. The project is a collaboration between researchers at Aarhus University, VIVE, the Danish Refugee Council and Danish municipalities.
Many more children and young people in Denmark will now have access to invent, design and construct in good facilities. The municipalities of Morsø, Skive, Holstebro, Næstved, Copenhagen and Fredensborg receive grants to create makerspaces.
This year, six highly promising researchers are the grantees under VILLUM FONDEN’s talent programme Villum International Postdoc – aka VIPO. The programme is targeted at female researchers in the technical and natural sciences.
