The Danish Centre for Design Research has appointed an external research committee, which assesses the merits of project applications and makes recommendations to the Steering Committee on the allocation of grant money from the research fund on the basis of a set of guidelines.
The Advisory Research Committee consists of three impartial researchers:
Pelle Ehn, professor, Malmö University
Lars Dybdahl, head librarian, the Danish Museum of Art & Design
Inge Mette Kirkeby, senior researcher, Danish Building Research Institute
The Advisory Research Committee meets three times a year following the three annual grant application deadlines. These deadlines are 1 February, 1 May, and 1 October.
