Danida has supported development research for many years. The support is provided to research projects that are developed in collaboration between Danish researchers and Ghanaian researchers, as well as institutional capacity building of universities and research institutions in Ghana in collaboration with Danish universities.


North and South Driven Development Cooperation

The aim of the support to development research is to strengthen the research capacity in the South, and to foster long-term cooperation between Danish and Ghanaian researchers and research institutions.

Danida Fellowship Centre (DFC) is responsible for the administration of the research projects and programmes supported by the Danida. Learn more about current projects here.
