The subject of Anglo-Danish portraiture has previously received little attention from researchers and so the aim of the project was to expand our knowledge on the nature and degree of artistic interaction between the two nations from the Renaissance and the 20th century in the field of portraiture.

The great Danish linguists presented here have reflected intensely on the change and diversification of language, and their works have had consequences for the principles of Danish orthography, for what we mean by Danish, and for how we (also internationally) understand the relationship between different languages and different stages of a language.

This article outlines a new research project concerning the American system of presidential libraries and their role in the creation of presidential legacies. It also discusses, in more general terms, some of the ways in which memories and commemorations of past presidents are being constructed, institutionalised – and sometimes weaponised.

Lars Buchhave | One of the greatest questions in the history of mankind is whether life exists elsewhere in the Universe. Astonishingly, a clear path towards resolving this question has recently emerged. Recent advances field of exoplanets have revealed an astounding prevalence of Earth-like planets, allowing us to discover and characterise temperate Earth-like exoplanets around the closest and thus brightest stars.

Jan J. Enghild | As the human population continues to grow, an increase of the global food production while simultaneously shrinking the agriculture’s environmental footprint is desirable. The goal of Jan J. Enghild's Propotato-project is to convert the current side-stream of potato starch production into a high-value protein product useful for human nutrition. The Carlsberg Foundation has supported the project with essential research infrastructure.

Søren Handberg | The Kalydon Archaeological Project aims to investigate the history of the ancient Greek city of Kalydon in Aitolia in western Greece through archaeological fieldwork. Danish archaeological work in the city began back in the 1920s, and since 2011 the Carlsberg Foundation has supported the continuation of the joint Danish-Greek explorations of the city.

Christian Janfelt | The Carlsberg Foundation Research Infrastructure Grant has contributed to establishing mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) as a research field in Denmark. The MSI instrumentation has been – and continues to be – used in research projects within pharmacology, drug delivery and plant biology. MSI contributes with highly detailed information about the spatial distribution of compounds, which cannot be obtained by conventional techniques such as liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS).
