Denmark wants useful research

The Danish Council for Strategic Research (DSF) has established four programme committees in charge of grants for areas such as energy, food, nano technology and IT. - Research must be useful and lead to the society‘s growth, says Peter Elvekjær, chairman of DSF.
The Danish Council for Strategic Research has a budget of 280 million DKK in 2004, of which 125 million will go to young researchers among other things. The rest will be used to strengthen research in energy, food, nano technology, IT and non-ionising radiation.

- Much of the innovation in research happens across traditional borders between fields and institutions. Therefore we have established programme committees that are both academically competent and able to broaden contact and create synergies between the initiatives, Peter Elvekjær explains.
