After three months of Microsoft-Teams meetings and working from home, the Ministry of Justice has announced in a press release that public institutions in eastern Denmark can reopen from next week.

“I am very happy to tell you that all employees can return to CBS from Monday June 15, following the decision by Government,” says Kirsten Winther Jørgensen, the University Director of CBS, in a statement on CBS Share and continues:

“We are looking very much forward to seeing you on campus again!”

Currently, only PhD Fellows, researchers whose research requires their physical presence and employees with critical duties are allowed on campus. So when the rest of the staff return, CBS will look more like itself once again.

“Public employees are a foundation stone of Danish society, and I believe that many people are excited about returning to their workplaces,” says the Minister for Justice, Nick Hækkerup, in a press release.

According to the statement on CBS Share, the reopening of CBS will be guided by health authority guidelines, and more information will follow during the next couple of days.

The Ministry of Justice announcement refers to a set of guidelines for the responsible reopening of public offices. For example, the guidelines call for continued use of working from home as well as staggered working hours, and stipulate that safe distances must be maintained between employees.

According to Kirsten Winther Jørgensen, that work must be arranged with immediate managers.

More details about the current guidelines referred to by the Ministry are available here (in Danish)

    CBS Associate Professor starts YouTube channel on compliance: “We must communicate research differently”

    For Associate Professor Kalle Johannes Rose, his YouTube channel about risk-based compliance serves many purposes. It is both a personal tool to help him structure and explain the material as well as an opportunity to reach out to people working with compliance and for them to ask questions before he finishes a new book. He believes that researchers should think differently about how they communicate their research, and that CBS could do a better job of helping them.
