Telling the stories

Many scientific results and outcomes of capacity development, learning programmes and research never make it to the public.

Danida Fellowship Centre tells the stories. From research in climate change, green growth and in global vaccines to the outcome of sector cooperation and learning programmes. We highlight the experiences of our fellows and alumni, and collaborate with the mass media and specialised publications for outreach and dissemination.

We publish many of our stories on this webpage but you will find even more stories on social media.

To keep updated, sign up for our quarterly newsletter.
