The Danish Development Research Network DDRN

Sharing Knowledge and Networking for Sustainable Development

Karsten Weitzenegger rejoined the Danish Development Research Network (DDRN). I use DDRN to connect to my northern neigbours and to highlight research of South researchers hosted at Danish universities.

The purpose of the DDRN is to enhance cross-sectoral North-South collaboration and coordination of research for development. DDRN was relaunched in 2017 as an on-line media for research communication.

    Coming from India, I was gladdened to see plenty of rainbow flags flying everywhere in Copenhagen during the just concluded Worldpride 2021. Never in my mind had I imagined a pride parade drawing in such a large crowd.
