For the eleventh year in a row the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation is coordinating the Festival of Research. And CBS is again participating.

Everyone is encouraged to stop by Frederiksberg on 22-23 April to hear about what’s happening in CBS’ social science lab. At two different events, CBS researchers will show a bit about what they are passionate about and what they spend their time on every day. In addition to this CBS researchers will be giving talks throughout the country.

The events are free and intended for a wide audience.

Prediction of the next fourth waves of growth
22 April 2015, 16:00-18:00
As a prelude to the Festival of Research, five researchers will present four predictions about where future growth will come from. As experts in competition in commercialisation, services, digitisation and human capital analytics, the five researchers will, based on their knowledge, talk about how to create the next growth wave. The talks will be given simultaneously and it is possible to attend talks in both English and Danish.

Today, a large number of transactions in the financial markets are handled by computer algorithms. But what impact has this had on the market? Two CBS researchers from the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy, Christian Borch and Ann-Christina Lange, and a representative from the banking sector, Jonas Hansen, Nordea Markets will present some of the most important aspects of the transition to algorithmic markets.
