Meet CBS at Folkemødet 2022

What part will the financial sector play in the green transition? How can blockchain change the Danish business community? And what will our professional life look like in the future? These and many more questions will be debated by researchers from Copenhagen Business School on June 16th-19th at Folkemødet 2022 on Bornholm.



Soon, citizens, businesses, and political parties will gather at the annual People's Democratic Festival (Folkemødet) in Allinge on the island of Bornholm. And once again, CBS is ready to take part in conversations and debates that focus on the role and importance of research in our society.

Among other things, our researchers will participate in a number of conversations about the possibilities and pitfalls of technology. We will highlight new ways of organising our professional lives, and we will discuss the road to more equality. At the event, “Topsy-turvy Educational System”, CBS’ student organisation, “CBS Students”, will focus on the well-being of students, the business community’s requirements and the sustainable society.

Public celebration and research communication

And so, the well assorted programme spans anything from algorithms and working life to human rights and equality. Acting Dean of Education at CBS, Peter Lotz, is pleased about CBS’ contribution to this annual public celebration, and he looks very much forward to participating in the celebrations himself:

“As a university, we have a great responsibility for communicating our research in a way that supports our big conversations and puts them into perspective. Democratic dialogue blossoms at Folkemødet, and I look forward to immersing myself in the debates. This will be my first time at Folkemødet, and with a line-up of varied and interesting events, I know I will be energised as I discuss transformative research ideas and debate experimental new approaches to solving some of the greatest challenges our society faces.”

Note: There may be changes to the programme, so we encourage you to stay updated at Folkemø
