IDEA becomes interAct

As per 6th of June interact replaces IDEA Entrepreneurship Centre as a unit promoting knowledge exchange between the academic world and the surrounding society.


In interAct, the Department of Entrepreneurship and Relationship Management at SDU has gained a new expert unit who specializes in transforming the latest knowledge on entrepreneurship, innovation and collaboration into practice by joining companies, students and researchers in interactive projects and processes.


Simultaneously, it is time to say goodbye to Ivan Tyrsted, who will retire as director of IDEA in order to continue his enterprising work as an active figure in entrepreneurial environments, and to Torben Bager, who also stops working as director at IDEA, but who will continue half time as a professor at the department.

New force – but the rest remains the same

Leading interAct from now on is Lone Toftild and Kristin B. Munksgaard who will function as daily leader and development leader, respectively.

.. and besides this business continues as usual:

• IDEA’s present projects continue under interAct – and new projects keep coming.
• The office is still on the 6th floor at SDU Kolding as well as at Alsion in Sønderborg.
• Both places you will meet the same people as before.
• And both places you are more than welcome to drop by and discuss a new idea over a cup of coffee!


We look forward to collaborating in creating solutions and qualified development beneficial to all participants. And as always, feel free to contact us to learn about the research projects, workshops and courses we offer.
