SDC provides a platform for jointly undertaken research activities and exchange of scientific staff between China and Denmark.

Since the two Memoranda of Understandings were signed in October 2008, both the Danish and the Chinese partners have worked on identifying research themes of interest to both parties. After consulting the domestic research environments, it has been agreed upon that the initial research activities of SDC fall within five major research themes, some of which are further divided into subthemes.

The five themes are:

The selection of themes is based on the presence of complementary strengths and significant growth potential. Chinese and Danish researchers collaborate within each research theme on joint research projects including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data as well as the publication and commercialization of research results.

Each research theme is jointly chaired by a Chinese and a Danish Principal Coordinator who take the lead in developing and improving the research agenda. This takes place with several Principal Investigators who implement and coordinate individual research projects within each overall theme.
