Danish IAS
The Danish IAS at SDU is a research centre that aims to inspire ground-breaking ideas through the meeting of minds across the sciences and humanities. The Danish IAS engages leading academics through its visitor programme, weekly talks, monthly lectures, and quarterly colloquia. There will be a strong focus on talent development of young researchers who work on game-changing ideas. Eminent academics are appointed as chairs, and in that capacity form the backbone of the Danish IAS as they catalyze activities within their field.
