One of our key competencies at the Center for Hospitality and Experience Economy is that we conduct a lot of research ourselves. It is however important the stress, that our research differs in some parts from more traditional research projects.
Consequently we are 100% independent in terms of funding. In other words, we are not reliant on getting research grants from the companies that are involved in our research projects, and the research that we conduct is therefore not affected by third parties or interest groups
All our research projects are done on a collaboration with companies from our line of industry. In our opinion, this is a crucial element in any research, so that the knowledge we collect, can be conveyed directly to companies.
We have a strict hands-on focus in everything we do. We firmly believe, that research is only relevant, if it creates value to the lines of industry we work with.
