As a researcher employed at the University of Copenhagen, you automatically fall under the Collective Agreement for Academics in the State (Danish). Your basic salary, number of holidays, pension and much more is determined by this agreement. The Danish labour market is characterised by strong trade unions and collective agreements, termed the Danish Model. It means that the general terms of employment are not regulated by the Government but by collective agreements made by the trade unions and employer associations.

Please make sure to inform the HR Center (who issues your contract) about your CPR number in order to get paid.
