Sapere Aude and Inge Lehmann grant

In 2020 Katja received a Sapere Aude and an Inge Lehmann grant from the Independent Research Council Denmark to conduct a large-scale international research project on neo-nationalism. The project explores how neo-nationalism has affected national and European higher education policy. The project centers on universities and compares how neo-nationalism has affected higher education policy in Poland, France, Denmark and the UK. It also examines recent actions taken by the EU to counter neo-nationalist trends in Europe.

The research program Policy Futures

Katja is research program director of Policy Futures. The research program explores the double challenge that is confronting current European education policy: 1)how the transnational turn in education policy is reshaping current and future concepts and governing of education, 2)how this transnational order is undermined by the rise of re-nationalizations, nationalisms and populisms.

The program supports the Bachelor's and Master's degree program in Education Science through research and teaching on education policy, governance and administration.

Katja also supervises doctoral students working with education reforms, higher education governance, universities, public-private partnerships, privatization and neo-nationalism.
