Inauguration of Center for IT Innovation

Headmaster Ralf Hemmingsen presents University of Copenhagens new Center for IT Innovation. 

Center for IT Innovation shall, in cooperation with the university's faculties and external partners, create og support innovative IT-environments across all academic disciplines.

In addition to establishing strong interdisciplinary research groups, the center develops a coherent system of Bachelor and Master study programs, which give the students the possibility of linking IT with their core disciplines. Furthermore, IT-certificates that create a foundation for and document the students’ IT skills, which are relevant to their core disciplines, are being developed.

The focus is on exploration of the stress field between IT and the subjects that IT is being connected to. This type of graduates and research are highly regarded in both the labor market and on universities in Denmark and other countries.

"Center for IT Innovation shall also attract public and private funding to IT-research that produces deep insight and usefullness for people, enterprises and society. The center’s vision is that Copenhagen University becomes an internationally acknowledged powerhouse in the fields of research, education and innovation for IT in combination with health sciences, social sciences, natural sciences, humanities, life sciences and pharmaceutical sciences," the director for the new center, professor Finn Kensing, says.
