Executive Vice President of Novo Nordisk, Mads Krogsgaard Thomsen, will be the new chairman of the Board at the University of Copenhagen. He replaces Nils Strandberg Pedersen.
After eight years as chairman of the Board, Nils Strandberg Pedersen has decided to resign as chairman. This takes effect on 1 April this year due to personal reasons and happens after the Board has completed the process of hiring a new rector – Henrik C. Wegener.
University of Copenhagen and the global player Bayer CropScience have successfully developed a new oilseed crop that is much more resistant to heat, drought and diseases than oilseed rape. The breakthrough is so big that it will feature as cover story of the April issue of Nature Biotechnology, the most prestigious journal for biotechnology research.
Lars Rebien Sørensen, one of Denmark's most successful business leaders, is now a distinguished alumnus at the University of Copenhagen. He joins several other prominent alumni such as Søren Ulrik Thomsen, Bodil Nyboe Andersen and Stine Bosse.
On 1 March 2017, Henrik Caspar Wegener becomes Rector of the University of Copenhagen. Wegener comes from a position as prorector at the Technical University of Denmark and he succeeds Ralf Hemmingsen, who has been Rector of UCPH for the past 12 years.
