SCIENCE Secretariat, Communication and Policy promotes the development of an efficient, coherent and clearly profiled Faculty whose study programmes and research help to solve the challenges facing society.

SCIENCE Secretariat, Communication and Policy promotes the development of an efficient, coherent and clearly profiled Faculty whose study programmes and research help to solve the challenges facing society. We are an office with a broad interface and a close collaboration with colleagues at the departments and in the Faculty Secretariat, the rest of UCPH as well as external parties.


In the Management Secretariat, we serve the Dean, the Associate Deans and the Faculty Director, who make up the Faculty’s overall management. However, we also handle a number of tasks that are to benefit both operations and development in the entire Faculty:

  • Implementation of UCPH’s strategy for SCIENCE
  • Project management in strategic and interdisciplinary organisational and development projects
  • Service and secretarial assistance for a number of management and collaboration forums
  • Legal advice for departments and the management
  • Coordination and planning of collaboration with key stakeholders, including supporting international strategic commitments.

The head of Secretariat is Lise Walsted Kristiansen.



Communication is responsible for the joint communication at the Faculty. Overall, our tasks fall within the following areas: 

  • Recruitment of students for Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes as well as bridge-building between municipal primary and lower secondary school and university
  • Research communication and press work
  • Web communication – website, intranet and social media
  • Internal communication – newsletters, management communication and info screens
  • Communication consultancy and sparring for management and employees
    Joint branding initiatives at the University of Copenhagen.

The head of Communication is Birgitte Lyhne Broksø.



Policy works to develop and maintain strong relations with private companies, public corporations, government agencies and foundations, support international strategic commitments and safeguard national and international interests. The section ensures stronger coordination of the Faculty’s interaction with the corporate sector, including improved internal utilisation of the knowledge generated in the interaction with businesses, organisations and government agencies.

The section is also responsible for implementing UCPH’s strategy at the Faculty of Science, handling project management in strategic and interdisciplinary organisational and development projects as well as developing and implementing continuing and further education offerings for external partners.

The head of Policy is Charlotte Elisabeth Fischer.


We spend a significant part of our working day working across tasks and competencies, both in our own section and with our partners. This creates the best possible communication for the Faculty and UCPH, and for the many people who want to keep up to date on or become part of the Faculty’s study programmes and research.
