Danida supports collaborative research and research capacity in developing and growth countries prioritized by Denmark’s development cooperation.

The funding aims to create new knowledge and to strengthen local research capacity in order to find new solutions to existing and emerging challenges.

Thousands of researchers and PhD students from both Denmark and developing and growth countries are involved in these projects.

Danida Fellowship Centre administers the application rounds for research projects and manages research support including the monitoring of project implementation. As part of our support, we administer study and research stays in Denmark for researchers and PhD students.

Danida Fellowship Centre also supports research partnerships and facilitates exchange and outreach.
