The Danish Research Agency and Danish Research Training Council have selected 23 out of 57 applying research schools to receive more than 100 million DKK over the next five years. 130 new PhD scholarships are expected to be established.

TheDanish Minster of research, Mr Helge Sander, states: "It is important that Danish research supports our vision of Denmark as a leading knowledge society. Therefore, it brings me great pleasure when academic environments across the country have joined the Research Training Council in their wish to organise research training in research schools. It is also a pleasure to see that the industry takes their responsibility for the education of new researchers, in order to establish better links between education, research and innovation."

The funding is granted to all academic fields,with slight emphasis on the humanities and social science, these being prioritused areas in 2001. In addition, importance has been given to the research schools as bridges to local authorities and the private sector.
