The Danish government wants to increase the total public research funding to DKK 22.2 billion on its budget. But this remains below the 2016 level before the large scale cuts. And the so-called re-prioritization contribution will continue, each year cutting two per cent from the universities’ grants for education.
The University of Copenhagen is to get more funding through a change of the so-called taximeter system, according to the Danish government. But the university does not understand the underlying calculations.
Students in higher education have evaluated their fellow students' ‘commitment’ in a new study. The result shows a "relatively low" commitment according to the Ministry for Higher Education and Research - and Minister Søren Pind believes that students should "pull up their socks and take responsibility".
Minister for Research Søren Pind has invited representatives from the country's universities and research foundations to a meeting. They are to discuss a strategy and vision for Danish research.
