Title: Marie Curie - Elena Korchmina, DEAR
Description: At a time when public attention emphasizes differences rather than similarities, comparative studies of Russia and Europe open new perspectives beyond the familiar dichotomous discourse. The project “Denmark and Russia: Why two Arctic empires developed so differently and continue to diverge?” (DEAR) examines Russo-Danish relations in the 18th and the 19th centuries, an epoch when the paths of two countries markedly diverged. During the whole 18th century they were very close in terms of economic and institutional development, but after the abolition of serfdom in Denmark in 1800 their paths diverged significantly. This was most striking with the gradual collapse of the Danish empire, and the subsequent rapid development of the remaining territory, whereas Russia remains relatively “backward”, although with its territory largely intact. From the 1860s a much-reduced Denmark became a teacher to its bigger partner through the transfer of knowledge, expertise, and experts – a process which aided Russian development, and emphasizes the links between the two countries, although these were by no means new.

DKK 1,544,474 - funded by EU - Horizon 2020, Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions
Title: Marie Curie - Volha Lazuka, DYNAMICS
Description: This project, “The Dynamic Impacts of Child Health and Skills Enhanced by School Interventions across the Life Course” (DYNAMICS), is the first ever to rigorously and comprehensively study complete short- and long-term dynamic effects of health and human capital at school ages. It combines research in the fields of economics and epidemiology to answer the overarching research question: whether and how the dynamics of a child’s health and skills, enhanced by successive nationwide school reforms, translates into various later-life outcomes. Economists have recently shown that public health interventions in early life substantially boost an individual’s earnings in the long term, albeit have not investigated how these effects emerge. Moreover, epidemiologists have found that body size, growth and disease history at school ages are strongly associated with health in adulthood. DYNAMICS investigates how the interplay of school health, nutrition, and education reforms as well as the event of WWII, which uniquely overlapped in Denmark, affected children and how it formed their health and well-being in adulthood.
