Many central societal problems can only be solved from a humanities and social sciences perspective. Humanities and social sciences are also associated with cultural activities and the development of both material and immaterial cultural heritage. Therefore we place great importance on teachers and researchers sharing their knowledge with the community and making themselves available as a resource to authorities, organisations, the business sector and the general public. 

Collaboration with the surrounding community also provides an important flow of ideas, needs and challenges back to the University. Our students’ placements and the professional activities of our alumni serve the same purpose: entrepreneurship, innovation and external assignments arise in the interface with the community.

Contexts where we have collaboration

  • Lectures on research for the general public and schools
  • Inquiries
  • Continuing professional development
  • Researchers being engaged as experts by media and in inquiries.
  • Study visits
  • Contract education
  • Popular science books
  • Opinion pieces
  • Companies based on research innovations
  • Referrals on draft legislation
  • And much more.
