On April 13, 2016 five representatives from the Danish National Research Foundation (DNRF) and its board visited the Niels Bohr Professorship Centre for Cultural Psychology at AAU for a follow-up meeting.
The purpose of the visit was for the DNRF to meet the members of the centre and see the surroundings of it, to learn about the successes of the centre, to listen to and understand our barriers and see if they could assist us in overcoming them, and to share experiences from the other Niels Bohr Professorships.
At the meeting, four members of the centre made short presentations of their work and how the centre has influenced it. This was followed by an informal meeting between the five representatives from DNRF and first the present post-docs and PhD students at the centre and then with the Niels Bohr Professor, the project’s Researcher-in-charge, the Head of Department, and administrative staff involved in the project. The selected main topic for the meetings was internationalisation.
