A busy month for SDU’s royal expert
January was an historic month for the royal family and a busy one for Michael Bregnsbo. SDU’s long-standing royal expert has diligently answered a great many questions from the media and the public about the change of throne. We spoke to him about his role as an expert and how his historical knowledge contributes to a better understanding of the present.

TEK management exposes students to hazardous environment in favour of prestigious research
For three years, the environment and 500 students in the association Development Lab at TEK in Odense have been exposed to hazardous health conditions resulting from health and safety violations in Create Lab. The students themselves have taken up the fight, while the management’s promises to find a solution are broken time and time again.

Aiming at the university of tomorrow
The word university derives from the Latin ’universitas magistrorum et scholarium’, which roughly means ’community of teachers and scholars’ as stated in Encyclopædia Britannica, 1911. With this column article, I would like to be a bit provocative on how universities are not living up to this phrase right now, and how we might fix that.
