Visitors Programme – University of Copenhagen

Cosmic Dawn Center > Visitors Programme

The Visitor Programme is an integral part of DAWN. Visitors contribute to DAWN science in a number of ways; they infuse ideas and stimulate activity, add their expertise to on-going projects, get inspired and develop projects.

DAWN's visitor programme offers support for collaborators to come to DAWN for short and long stays. 

<< Visitor Application Form >>
 

There is a wide range of opportunities, both regarding scope and duration of the visit. The main criterion is to optimize scientific return. We support short-duration visits of days to weeks as well as long-term visits up to 12 months. Visits of more than 2-3 weeks are strongly encouraged.  Our associates have a standing invitation to visit.

Generally, visits fall into one of these categories:

  • Scientists of world-recognized caliber in one of the areas of interest to DAWN.
  • Visitors who can contribute to DAWN science-related activities.
  • Those who would like to collaborate on a specific scientific project.

Visits can take many forms. For example, a single scientist or a research team of co-authors may visit DAWN to contribute to a paper, an important application or a proposal.  Suggestions for mini-workshops are also welcome.

Prospective visitors are kindly requested to complete the Visitor Application Form. Before submitting the form, prior contact to a DAWN scientist is encouraged.

Support

Work space, computer access and administrative support are offered to all visitors. Request for financial support should be included on the Visitor Application Form. It is expected that most visits are at least co-funded.

Visitors are supported by the DAWN admin team, who will help with all of the administrative aspects of the visit, including housing.  Any specific or unusual computing needs must be communicated prior to arrival.

The prospective visitor's host will introduce the visitor to the scientific and non-scientific life at DAWN.
