2016 - Strategy for the University of Copenhagen

The purpose of 2016 is to define the framework and the direction for the University’s continuing development. In their daily studies, work and commitment, students and employees should be able to apply their own initiatives and ideas and as such contribute to meeting the objectives of the strategy.

Based on the University’s scientific foundation and the continuing work to strengthen excellent research, the strategy describes three selected focus areas.


1. Improving education
2. Strengthening external collaboration worldwide
3. Strengthening internal collaboration and a shared identity
