The CBS Public-Private Platform Participated for the Third Time at the Political Festival ‘Folkemødet’.

Folkemødet is a annual four day event taking place at the Danish island Bornholm, where politicians, researchers, public servants, private organization and the civil society meet and discuss issues on the current political agenda. Thus, the aim of the Platform’s engagement was to debate the Public-Private agenda, to engage in interesting dialogues with existing and/or future collaborators and not least to increase the awareness of the important societal solutions addressed through Public-Private Partnerships.
