Danish Science Communication
The mission of Danish Science Communication is to engage children and young people in science. We believe that science should be a natural part of their formation, and they should be offered the opportunity to experience the joy and excitement of science
Inspiration, synergy, and new ways
We are an innovative and creative project organisation working with development projects in schools and upper secondary education. Our goals are:
- To inspire teachers and communicators in their work with children and young people within the educational system
- To create synergy between various initiatives
- To find new ways to engage children and young people in science
Activities for a broad audience and the elite
We believe that change happens through a long haul. Every year we coordinate Danish Science Week - a nationwide campaign with activities for schools and upper secondary education programmes. Young Scientists is another annual event with a more narrow audience namely that of science talents. We have launched 25 municipalities of science to create synergy between the many efforts Denmark offers within the science discipline. We work with the municipality of Odense to facilitate integration of ethnic minority students combing science and innovation. This project is called ISI 2015 and is a six-year long project.
Danish Science Communication was established in 2001. We are an independent, non-profit organisation that works with financial support from the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, and number of private foundations, organisations, and companies. Our board of directors consists of key persons from the education system and business community.
DNF has an office with 16 full-time employees, with degrees in science and communication.
DNF is a founding member of EUSCEA - European Science Events Association, and DNF's director, Mikkel Bohm, was president of EUSCEA year 2004-2006.
