CBS Public-Private Platform at Folkemødet
From 16-19th of June, 2016, the CBS Public-Private Platform participated, for the fourth time, in the political festival ‘Folkemødet’. Each year thousand of people come together at the Danish island Bornholm to take part in this event. Here, the main topic on the agenda is to address current political issues. Therefore, the political festival is a great place for the Platform to share thoughts about Public and Private related issues as well as to engage in dialogue with current and future collaborators.
At this year’s festival, the Platform co-organized a number of interesting debates in collaboration with EY (Ernst and Young), KORA, Confederation of Danish Industry and the Danish think tank CEVEA. All of the events were well attended with a number of inspiring speakers as well as well-prepare participants.
