Karol Jan Borowiecki is Professor at the Department of Economics at University of Southern Denmark. He holds a PhD in Economics from Trinity College Dublin and a PhD in Economic History from Lund University.

His research interests are mainly in the economic history of the art (the intersection between economic history and cultural economics). Karol’s work provides original approaches to the study of existing, large problems, which cannot be analyzed in conventional ways. Some of his innovative work is regarded as path-breaking, e.g., the UN World Happiness Report 2019 presents Karol’s linguistic inquiry method to study well-being as a solution to "prediction policy problems". 

Karol chairs the interdisciplinary cluster Creativity and Innovation in the Digital Age at University of Southern Denmark, he is founder and previously co-editor of EconomistsTalkArt.org, and guest editor at the Journal of Cultural Economics and the European Review of Economic History. He has been collaborating with or consulting, among others, the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (Nesta), The Arts Council England, and The Ministry of Culture and Communication in France. His co-edited book Cultural Heritage in a Changing World (downloaded ca. 400k times) influences cultural managers and policy makers across Europe.
