Education and outreach

Education and outreach

Education

Education includes grant-awarding activities within Denmark that support students and teachers from preschool through post-secondary education. Early engagement of students and educators in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines is important to facilitate interest among children and adolescents.

The Foundation’s activities will focus on:

  • Educational and teaching resources as well as methods within STEM, especially for primary and secondary schools
  • Science and teaching competency levels of STEM teachers through teacher colleges
  • Research on and dissemination of evidence-based best teaching and learning practices
  • Vocational education and training within STEM

Outreach

Outreach includes grant-awarding activities that support scientific literacy, awareness and appreciation in the general population and help build a strong voice for the importance of scientific research.

The Foundation’s activities will focus on:

  • Science communication and public debate
  • Science experiences (outside the formal education system)
  • Humanities research to generate new perspectives and critical reflections related to science, technology and healthcare
  • Selected areas to support Denmark’s broader interests
