The Presidium Organisation
The presidium was a committee with a chair and 11 appointed representatives from Denmark’s universities, museums, cultural industries and churches.
The presidium was authorised to set up working groups for specific tasks. Expenses – including meeting expenses and any fees paid to members of the presidium - were to be covered by the Ministry of Ecclesiastical Affairs, which issued the regulations the presidium is to operate under.
The presidium ended its term of office at the end of 2017.
