​Danmarks Nationalbank supports two professorships within economics as part of its bicentenary celebrations in 2018.

Each donation comprises annual grants of kr. 1 million for five years, to be used for remuneration of the full-time professor and to cover costs for office facilities, travel etc. in connection with the professorship. The professorships may be extended for three years.

Following an open process, the universities of Aarhus and Copenhagen were chosen as the recipients of the donations.
