Many thriving research environments within a wide range of areas can be found at the university’s five faculties. SDU has garnered international acclaim for its contributions to a variety of fields, spanning from twin research and robotics to the life and works of H.C. Andersen.
Research at SDU serves several purposes.
Firstly, research creates new knowledge and insights into complex issues.
Secondly, research supports the education programmes and courses offered at SDU.
Thirdly, the results are disseminated so that SDU research can benefit the private sector and the general public.
2016 marked the opening of SDU’s Danish Institute for Advanced Study (D-IAS). At the institute, researchers and talented individuals meet and inspire one another across subject areas, departments and faculties to develop new research.
