Research and development

Research and Development at University College Copenhagen (KP) creates new knowledge and concrete solutions to challenges within the professions we teach in close collaboration with national and international stakeholders.

We attach great value to international partnerships and network participation, viewing our partners as a source of inspiration and innovation in our endeavours to strengthen research and development.

Research and development that addresses challenges in practice

KP aims to produce research and development relevant to the significant societal challenges that our professionals work passionately to overcome. KP’s research and development enables professionals to provide more qualified task solutions for citizens, organisations and companies by generating concrete knowledge and further qualifying the professional space.

We do this by:

  • Developing and testing tools, methods and interventions for professionals in practice
  • Focusing on the potential to scale research projects to include several professionals

Research programmes

KP’s research and development activities are organised into research programmes. Each research programme addresses a key societal challenge that our professionals are committed to solving.
