Aarhus’ strongholds

Sustainable Food Technology

The Danish food cluster is the 3rd largest in the world

Denmark has been named an “agricultural superpower” by The Economist and is one of the leading food industry hubs in Europe. Some of the world’s most successful and largest corporates such as Danish Crown, Arla, and IFF, are located in the Aarhus-area. They produce and develop one of Denmark’s largest export goods – food. In fact, every day, Danish ingredients are consumed by more than 1 billion people worldwide.

Aarhus has a long-standing tradition for collaborations between corporates, start-ups, knowledge institutions and public entities, thus providing excellent infrastructure for innovation.

With the Danish Government’s goal to reduce our GHG emissions with 70% by 2030, sustainability is now the engine driving innovation on Denmark’s largest export market.

Life Science

Aarhus is home to one of the world’s best and most digital hospitals.

In a ranking of 1,500 hospitals, Aarhus University Hospital is the 11th best hospital in the world and number four in Europe. The hospital is also amongst the top-20 most digital hospitals in the world.

The University Hospital is, as the name indicates, closely connected to Aarhus University. A University that on most rankings scores in the top-100 out of +17.000 universities in the world.

This creates the optimal conditions for innovation, and thus, startups within health tech and life science are continuously emerging in the region. And with successful companies such as Systematic and Trifork leading the way, the area has a place on the world map as an exciting place for life science startups.

Cleantech

Within Cleantech, Denmark’s two largest exports are wind- and water technologies.

The Aarhus-area is home to some of the world’s largest and most successful companies within water technologies. Companies such as Grundfos and Kamstrup are revolutionizing how we utilize the world’s water reserve.

Within wind technologies, companies such as Vestas and Siemens Gamesa are producing wind energy that fuels the world. Currently, Denmark is taking the first steps in building the world’s first energy island – a 19 football field large cluster of offshore wind turbines, which will produce enough energy to power 3 million households.

With role models such as these, startups are emerging from within the companies and our knowledge institutions – innovating the way we think clean in the future.
