The point of departure for The Royal Academy Annual Science-policy Meeting 2017 will be the Danish Universities. We would like to invite you to a debate about the university as a social function, as a learning facility for the best talents of country and a creative space for innovation and development.  We strongly believe that these roles of the universities are more important than ever. A lot is at stake: it is all about culture, common good, and the economy.
