Open and participatory research

Sharing Knowledge

In a society where everyone is connected, the possibilities for sharing knowledge and ideas are constantly increasing.

This is a major potential for university research. We believe that the most vital questions and the most relevant solutions occur in the interaction between universities, individuals, businesses and organizations. The experience possessed by others can be used to identify relevant problems and to qualify solutions in interaction with the university.

Involving the Outside World

We are engaged in developing new ways to interact with the world around us.

We involve the outside world in our research, in our identification and understanding of the nature of problems and in the dialogue regarding possible solutions for the benefit of both the local community and the rest of the world. We are also constantly engaged in developing new ways to interact with the world around us, in order to ensure that the university's reach extends as far as possible into the outside world and that the world reaches even further into the university. Everyone should be able to draw on the knowledge that we create at Roskilde University, and we should be able to draw on knowledge from everyone.

We create knowledge and share it with society
