DAWN brings together experts in all aspects of early Universe galaxy evolution and is deeply involved in major existing and upcoming surveys with e.g. HST, ALMA, Euclid and JWST, as well as cosmological and zoom in simulations.

For more information on the Center's activities and researchers, please see  https://dawn.nbi.ku.dk/.
