The Tuborg Research Centre
for Globalisation and Firms

The Tuborg Research Centre for Globalisation and Firms is closing

The Tuborg Research Centre for Globalisation and Firms as been concluded in 2019. The centre was created by two generous grants from the Tuborg Foundation and support from Aarhus University.  This homepage maintains a small record of research and outreach from 10 years of operation.

Researchers associated with the centre have in the period 2008 to 2019 worked on issues within international economics and international business, including extensive knowledge dissemination towards the general public and the business community.

Many of the centre researchers continue their work at FIND: A Semper Ardens Research Centre for Firms and Industry Dynamics, Aarhus BSS, Aarhus University.

New Research Centre on Industry Dynamics - FIND

With a Semper Ardens Grant of DKK 15 million from The Carlsberg Foundation, a new research centre with the initials FIND (Firms and INdustry Dynamics) will be established at the Department to conduct basic research into mechanisms and consequences of disruption and globalisation.

The adjustments of the market economy to shocks such as technological change or trade liberalisation always go through firms, among others through the process of creative destruction. Yet, society cares about other aggregates and effects, such as employment and welfare. By combining theoretical models of general equilibrium analysis, methods from industrial organization, organizational economics, and register data on firms and individuals, the centre will aim at understanding industry shifts, reallocation mechanisms and firm and individual outcomes. Ultimately, the insights gained from this research will allow researchers to conduct and compare policy experiments and predict the possible economic consequences of various initiatives - such as the introduction of a universal basic income or a robot tax.

The new FIND research centre will be headed by Philipp Schröder, who is joined by a team of senior fellows from Aarhus, including Frederic Warzynski, who co-developed the project, and by a group of distinguished foreign scholars.

The centre is in part co-financed by Aarhus BSS. The Semper Ardens grant for FIND is the first Carlsberg Foundation grant within the field of economics. With this grant the centre’s operating budget is secured for the next six years.

DNA of Export

The DNA of Export has been developed in close cooperation between the Danish Export Association and the Tuborg Research Centre for Globalisation and Firms.

The DNA of Export specifies the DNA of successful exporters. This is a unique research-centered but highly practical recipe for how firms succeed in their international activities. The recipe is based on international research results and numerous studies and findings from the Tuborg Research Centre using data from Statistics Denmark’s registers covering all Danish firms.
