The Working Group for Funders and Grants

The working group for Funders and Grants has been established by the Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science and is involved in the development of a Danish Funders and Grants Database.

 The dedicated working group serves as an expert panel and collaborative partner in the design and development of:

  • A Standardized data format for metadata
  • Establishing consistent terminology and addressing name variants
  • Qualifying the database scope
  • Defining a technical exchange format
  • A demotype and prototype, Danish Grants Database
  • Overview of global persistent IDs for funders and grants

The working group meets monthly during the initial start-up phase and additionally, when needed. The working group’s activities are led and coordinated by the NORA team and chaired by Mogens Sandfær, who can be contacted for further information.
