External relations

The Faculty of Humanities strives to systematically enhance and strengthen its relations with the public and private sectors. The faculty aims at establishing long-term strategic partnerships with relevant stakeholders; matchmaking, collaboration about education, putting research findings to good commercial use and strategic dialogue are important means to achieve this goal.

Research collaboration

You can read more about the possibilities for collaborating with researchers at the Faculty of Humanities on the UCPH portal for business collaboration. The following cases are exemplary of the types of collaborations we engage in:

  • Consortium for language and subject matter didactics in primary and lower secondary school
    In collaboration with University College UCC and University College Metropol the Consortium provides a joint platform for research based knowledge of language and subject matter didactics put to practical use.

  • Digital humanities – national digital infrastructures
    Along with other Danish universities and external partners such as the National Museum of Denmark, the Royal Library, the Danish Broadcasting Corporation, the faculty participates in a number of large national digital infrastructures; two examples are CLARIN-DK (Common Language Ressources and Technology Infrastructure) and DIGHUMLAB (Digital Humanities Lab Denmark).
  • Impact cases
    Society benefits from humanities research carried out in collaboration with companies or authorities – and from more traditional humanities research.
    See some examples of impact cases.

Study job and internships

If your company wants to get in touch with humanities students about internships, study jobs or academic projects, the faculty will help you advertise the positions in the UCPH Job Bank.

Strategic dialogue

The faculty has established close relationships with both private and public organisations. These relationships are organised as follows:

External Board

The External Board serves as the faculty management’s sparring partner on matters of strategic concern as well as on discussions regarding relevant political, cultural, business- and media-related issues.

Employer panels

The departmental employer panels are comprised of representatives from both the private and public sectors, ensuring that the academic programmes match the competences that are in demand in the labour market.

Affiliate professors

The faculty’s departments’ are affiliated with a number of professors from both Danish and international universities, e.g. University of Cambridge and Australian National University, Canberra. The affiliate professors are appointed for a five-year period and regularly visit the faculty to collaborate with researchers, lecturers and students.
