About the faculty
The Faculty of Science at the University of Copenhagen – or SCIENCE – is Denmark's largest science research and education institution with 3,400 employees and 9,000 BSc and MSc students in 11 departments and the Natural History Museum of Denmark. The Faculty has an annual budget of DKK 2.5 billion.
The Faculty's most important task is to contribute to solving the major challenges facing the rapidly changing world with increased pressure on, among other things, natural resources and significant climate change, both nationally and globally.
At the same time, the Faculty must contribute to generating economic growth and, thus, ensure our welfare in society. This must take place in close cooperation with the business community and public authorities, organisations and other universities, both in Denmark and abroad.
