Board member - the Danish Council for Independent Research
Professor Henrik Toft Sørensen has been re-elected member of the board of the Danish Council for Independent Research for another two years. In 2017, the council will take on new tasks to strengthen Danish research. A new political agreement means that the council will be better positioned to manage the implementation of funds allocated for particular research questions. The council will also get the possibility of imposing a waiting period on researchers who have submitted applications of poor quality. The changes will be implemented in 2017.
