Danish universities emerge as top Horizon grant recipients


Three Danish universities – up from only one in 2018 – feature among the top 10 recipients of funding from Europe’s flagship innovation programme Horizon Europe following the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union – with the three institutions netting a total of €212 million (US$232 million) in grants between them.

While the top-performing university in Horizon Europe was the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands with €93.6 million received, followed by KU Leuven in Belgium with €91.8 million, Danish universities have taken spots three, four and six on the list, according to the Danish Ministry of Education and Research figures up to the end of February 2023.

The Danish universities include the Denmark Technical University (€87.2 million), Aarhus University (€66.7 million) and the University of Copenhagen (€58.3 million).

In total, 479 researchers at Danish universities participated in the contracts: 135 researchers from DTU, 131 from the University of Copenhagen and 113 from Aarhus University.
