External Research Funding

In 2012 CBS developed an External Research Funding Strategy with the purpose of increasing external research funding income, and at the same time working on a culture change in the direction of a higher collective prioritization of external funding. The strategy has nine focus areas, which CBS will prioritize over the next years in regard to external research funding:

  1. Focusing on strategic research with business partners
  2. Targeting private foundations
  3. Targeting blockbusters
  4. Encouraging initiatives across borders, disciplines, institutions, and sectors
  5. Attracting top level research and researchers
  6. Supporting Business in Society platforms and World Class Research Environments
  7. Supporting departmental initiatives
  8. Monitoring and benchmarking
  9. Increasing incentives
