A primary purpose of the visit is to continue the excellent collaboration between Izak and faculty members from the Department of IT Management (ITM) at Copenhagen Business School (CBS), which in turn helps to reinforce the long-standing relationship between CBS and UBC. For the duration of his visit, Izak will be associated with and situated at ITM. During his visit, Izak will engage in five primary activities as listed below.(1) Develop a promising new research program on the ‘Design of ext-Generation Crowd Platforms’.
