MSC professor wins Science Slam

 

One highlight was the Copenhagen Science Slam where researchers from DTU, the University of Copenhagen and CBS battled to deliver the best science dissemination.

 

With 10 minutes - and all their ingenuity - at their disposal, the researchers presented their research as engagingly as possible in the hope of winning the favour of the audience who handed down the verdict at the end.

 

Professor MSO, and co-director of the Digital Transformations Platform, Mikkel Flyverbom, won the title with his ‘slam dunk’ on digital doppelgangers whose traces in cyberspace were

illustrated with gold confetti.

 

Miniature golf and the SDGs

 

Another CBS highlight with MSC participation was the Verdensmålsminigolf  (the SDG miniature golf competition) which took place at Sandvig Miniature Golf course.

 

The Diversity and Difference Platform, in collaboration with Kvinfo and the Danish Institute for Human Rights, had invited politicians, researchers, students, NGOs and many more to play a game of miniature golf while debating the 17 Sustainable Development Goals as they went along.
