The Reference Group will ensure information exchange with the local community on development, create a shared understanding of challenges and help identify and release potentials for SDU Esbjerg. In addition, the Reference Group will help establish partnerships between local businesses, public entities and SDU Esbjerg, as well as contribute to establishing attractive study conditions. The Reference Group should therefore work on all aspects of the academic activities at SDU Esbjerg and contribute to these activities reaching the highest international level.
The Reference Group draws up a plan for its work based on an assessment of what is particularly important for SDU Esbjerg's development. The plan must contain concrete and measurable success criteria for education, research, social affairs and economics, and must be submitted to the SDU Executive Board for approval.
