External assignments

Over the years, I have had several external assignments linked to my scientific and pedagogical work. What characterises most of these assignments is that I try to link research and practice to each other, which is beneficial in both directions. Practitioners do have a lot to learn from academic research, at the same time as their experiences are most relevant to students. This is especially important in a field like industrial economics & management. As examples of this kind of work, I would like to mention the following:
