Rune Frederiksen | 2011-2014 Dr Rune Frederiksen – then director of the Danish Institute at Athens – was given four subsequent grants from the Carlsberg Foundation during 2011-2014 to carry out a complete excavation, study and publication of the theatre at the ancient Greek city state of Kalydon. The project was carried out as a new Danish-Greek collaborative project.
Silke Müth-Frederiksen | Studying ancient civilisation leads us to the origins of our own culture, the roots of modern democracy, the meaning of art in different contexts, and thus may influence present-day society.

Jørgen Kjems | Using new high speed DNA sequencing methods and computer analysis, we hope to be able to develop ‘artificial tasting machines’ that not only can help determine the sensory characteristics but also enable assessment of quality, authenticity, and contamination in food in a rapid manner for use in industrial production.

Jens-Christian Svenning | Evidence is emerging that megafaunas may be crucial for ecosystem function and may even affect Earth’s climate and large-scale nutrient cycling. Reflecting this, it is increasingly, but controversially argued that megafaunas should be reintroduced to restore their ecological functions to promote self-regulating biodiverse ecosystems (trophic rewilding).

Karl Anker Jørgensen | This article will introduce the importance of asymmetric organocatalysis and the potential to expand this field further by innovative multidisciplinary ventures. These involve novel combinations of organocatalysis with photo- and laser spectroscopy, computational chemistry and high-pressure reactions.
