The Committee for Education establishes the annual programme for the DDEA education and talent development activities and the DDEA networking and collaboration activities, and is responsible for planning the activities included in the annual programme.
The principal tasks of the Committee for Education are to:
Establish an annual academic, scientific programme for the DDEA education and talent development activities and networking and collaboration activities.
Coordinate, organise, and plan the activities included in the annual programme.
Explore how to improve capacity building of early-career researchers and outcomes of the activities.
Set up relevant ad hoc sub-committees for organising individual activities included in the annual programme or to receive input on how to implement the four strategic themes (digitalization and new technologies; public involvement and outreach; strategic partnerships; and translational research).
The Committee for Education consists of 12 members including a Chair. The composition of the committee is based on a well-balanced and broad representation of stakeholders in Denmark with regard to gender, age, career level, national geography, and sectors.
The members and the Chair are appointed by the DDEA Board of Directors. The Chair serves for five years and the committee members serve for 2.5 years (from 1 January 2023), with the option for another 2.5 years.
The Chair of the committee is Professor Nils Færgemann, University of Southern Denmark.
