Manuel Llorca prepares EU for tackling energy poverty and a tough winter

Rising energy demands combined with a low production of electricity from renewables have resulted in soaring energy prices and laid bare the consequences for people living in so-called energy poverty.

Criticized company form dispensed with: “Now, only children with rich parents can afford to start businesses”

Irregular political moved and bad publicity have been the downfall of the entrepreneur company form, and on November 15, 5,500 businesses risk facing a compulsory dissolution, according to CBS professor Troels Michael Lilja.

Bribes covered as facilitation fees, and document fraud are part of the ugly truth about how global industries are run, the United Nations claims. Now, CBS research suggests that blockchain technology can help to mitigate corruption in the shipping industry – and elsewhere. But fraudsters and crooks will always find a way, the researchers point out.

Can you lead an academic department successfully?  

Department heads are often thrown into their position with no formal leadership training, claim three CBS researchers. They have therefore compiled an anthology of tips, tricks and experiences from the field covering subjects including diversity, team spirit and general management to inspire current and future department heads to become successful leaders.

That’s interesting: “Good research always has an element of a good cock-and-bull story”

Postdoc Jannick Friis Christensen and PhD Thomas Burø from CBS have created the concept ‘That’s interesting’. A kind of science club where researchers and everyone else can hang out and listen to new research being presented.
