Top researchers and practitioners in the fields of architecture and design will enrich research and education at KADK for the next two years. A generous 1.7 million DKK grant from the Villum Foundation will finance the visits of seven international professors to KADK in 2015 and 2016.

The aim of the “Velux Visiting Professor programme” is to support research and education in Denmark by bringing international expertise and experience to Danish research environments. Moreover, the aim is to establish lasting research networks and educational programmes.

“We are very pleased with the grant from the Villum Foundation. The Velux Visiting Professor Programme is a unique opportunity to invite leading researchers and practitioners in the fields of architecture and design to KADK’s research environments and educational programmes. We can benefit from these contacts for many years to come.”
