Call for Competitiveness Related Initiatives

CBS Competitiveness is pleased to support competitiveness initiatives across CBS departments and disciplines – we are now calling out for competitiveness related initiatives.

 We have received many applications already. Therefore we highlight that those applications that will be favoured:

  • make explicit how the initiative is contributing to the competitiveness of Danish firms
  • comprise cross-departmental activities
  • include a dissemination dimension where results are communicated broadly
  • propose activities that would not take place without the support from CBS Competitiveness

Read more about the initiatives that are supported by CBS Competitiveness.

CBS Competitiveness is formed as a response to the ongoing societal discussion on how we can strengthen the competitiveness of Danish firms in a global context. CBS Competitiveness is able to support activities related to research, teaching and outreach, including expenses on workshops, seminars, travel, salary for research or student assistance, acquisition of data, and visiting faculty. However, please note that CBS Competitiveness is not allowed to compensate faculty by internal buyout (frikøb) and we usually don’t support travel expenses for CBS employees that would otherwise be covered by the departments.

The intention is not to fund the operation of research projects or teaching courses, but to support planning and development of new initiatives i.e. seed money. In the same way CBS Competitiveness will not support annual conferences or workshops (that would take place anyway), but only development of new workshops etc.

Please use the application form below and send it to Applicants will receive an answer to their application shortly after.
