Series: Research that makes a difference

In this series, you will gain insight into what researchers at Copenhagen Business School are working on and its relevance for companies, organisations, and society in general.

Using research to shape the future of artificial intelligence


A new handbook ‘Road to the adoption of Artificial Intelligence by the public sector’, co-authored by Professor MSO Rony Medaglia, has recently been published by the European Commission. The handbook contains recommendations for European policy makers on how to use artificial intelligence in public services in an effective and human-centric way. Here are five questions for Professor MSO Rony Medaglia from the Department of Digitalization about artificial intelligence (AI) and its use in the public sector in Europe.


A living lab for studying expectations


A new project will become the first living lab for systematically studying expectations of the future. Here are five questions for CBS Assistant Professor Luigi Butera who won the prestigious Sapere Aude grant back in November.


Design a more sustainable working life through research

Micheal Pedersen

Michael Pedersen, Associate Professor at the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy, studies the professional as well as the personal consequences and effects of a four-day working week.


Has gig work the potential to develop your professional skills?

No Trees, No Future - Unlocking the full potential of conservation finance


Associate Professor Kristjan Jespersen from MSC has just been awarded a grant from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation to address questions at the forefront of conservation and business practice about how, and through which mechanisms can the costs of conservation be shared effectively across the palm oil value chain.


Tech disciplines need female input

Jette Sandager

Women should also determine and develop the technology of the future and contribute to new ways of thinking. These are some of the arguments for creating better gender balance among engineers, IT programmers and other technical and scientific industries.

In her PhD thesis, Jette Sandager from the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy at CBS examines what guides the educational choices of girls – with a special focus on the so-called STEM programmes. (STEM focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math)


Research-based tools give leaders a new perspective on stress

Pernille Steen Pedersen

In addition to being a universally human feeling, shame is also closely related to our level of stress, as shown in Pernille Steen Pedersen’s research. Pernille is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy at CBS, and based on her research, she has developed tools that can strengthen the working environment as a step towards stress prevention.
