Partner institutions

The Platform involves two types of institutional partners. Core partners are universities, which have separate budget allocations and ear-marked funding for agreed activities as defined in the activity plan. Core partners in Denmark contribute 1:1 in-kind co-financing.

Associate partners may be universities or other research institutions that are involved in planning or execution of specific Platform activities in the partner countries, or who are linked with core partner institutions through other research networks and have additional funding or activities that may work in synergy with Platform activities.
