Still struggling to understand that I was selected as 'Sapere Aude' Research Leader after such tough review process. It took 10 months, 1 internal review in the Social Science Danish Research Council, 1 external review by 3 international experts and then 1 interview where I had to convince the heads of the other Research Councils (Health, Nature, Humanities, Tech) to fund me. For once, I will thank my kids for putting road blocks on my research path. If I had not been on paternity leave for 12 months since my PhD-graduation, I would not have been eligible to apply in the first place..
