CJMC’s Funding Situation

In March 2014, the center's Director Claudia Welz founded CJMC with the help of the Elite Research Prize awarded to her in 2013 by the Danish Ministry of Science, Innovation, and Higher Education.

During the first 8 months of CJMC's existence, center activities have exclusively been funded by this prize. In the meantime we have attracted additional funding for CJMC conferences, workshops, lectures and PhD courses (for further information, see calendar).

CJMC is still a mini-center with a large international network of affiliated researchers.

Junior and senior scholars who are interested in participating in CJMC’s projects and spending a period of time at the center are strongly encouraged to find funding for PhD stipends, postdoctoral research fellowships, or research stays. The center will provide office space, library rights, and a thriving research environment.
