CAPACITY BUILDING AND EVALUATION (CABE)
Interplay with teaching
External research and development projects
The research group delivers research-based knowledge and products of knowledge, thus contributing to effective capacity building, evaluation and organizational development in private, public and volunteer organizations. The group conducts research on the basis of a principle of double validity: committed research improves practice and contributes to the development of organizations and institutions, while the research itself is informed by and improved through practical application.
Fields of Research
CaBE works with the following theoretical perspectives: capacity building, evaluation, co-creation, organizational learning, university-industry collaboration, innovation, creativity and user-involvement. The theoretical perspectives of the research group are applied to a variety of substance areas, including education (kinder garden, public school, secondary education, higher education), the social services (elderly/handicapped, housing, social work and the mentally ill), private organizations and the volunteer area.
The research group participates both in conferences and seminars, presenting the most up-to-date knowledge in the fields of research and substance areas of the research group. Furthermore, members of the research group hold lectures or deliver presentations to inspire practitioners and professionals.
The research group works with external researchers and practitioners to further knowledge of capacity building and evaluation – not just in Denmark, but in the entire world. Through conference participation, network meetings, cross-national projects, publication in international journals etc, the research group works actively to create knowledge for the world.
