Novo Nordisk International Talent Program
University of Copenhagen and the Danish medical company Novo Nordisk have developed the Novo Nordisk International Talent Program (NNITP) - a scholarship programme designed to attract international talent and to support talented students in gaining an international study experience as part of their degree programmes.
