DKK 40 million for TrygFonden’s Centre for Child Research

Professor Simon Calmar Andersen

TrygFonden’s Centre for Child Research was established in 2013 with a donation of DKK 60 million from TrygFonden for the period until 2018. TrygFonden has recently got permission to initiate contract negotiations with Aarhus University with the intent to extend the funding until the end of 2022 with a new grant of DKK 40 million.

The decision is made after a thorough evaluation process carried out by a Peer Review Panel. The panel’s evaluation of the centre’s work over the last five years and its assessment of the prospects of the extension application is very positive and encouraging. For example the panel concludes: ”The panel is impressed with how the centre has managed to carry out large-scale RCTs within the short time frame of the centre’s existence” and “The panel finds that overall the research at the centre is of high quality, high importance and of high relevance to Danish society.”

The centre, headed by Simon Calmar Andersen from Department of Political Science, is looking forward to continue the journey over the next five years, when the negotiations between TrygFonden and Aarhus University hopefully are concluded successfully.
