New Danish affiliation groupings in Research Portal Denmark

February 2023

Following feedback from several of the users and data providers of the Research Portal, we have revisited and re-designed the original organizational affiliation categories that have been in use since the launch of the Research Portal Denmark last year. This has resulted in an expansion of the number of normalized Danish affilliation names (so-called NORA names) and the addition of further organization groupings, which can be found and used in for example the filter Danish Affiliations in all the databases. These additions should make the search experience in the Research Portal even better. Among the new groupings are Business Academies and Artistic Higher Education Institutions. Explore all the new organizations and categories in one of the portal’s current publication-based databases:
