Grundfos Student Innovation Camp is an example of how valuable industry-academia connections can create future cooperation on business, research and talent spotting between Korea and Denmark. Innovation Centre Denmark (ICDK) Seoul planned and facilitated the camp.

Talent spotting

"We received a lot of valuable ideas, and we tested top talents with interest in our company", says Hyun Wook Shin, General Manager of Grundfos Pumps Korea.

The involved universities strengthened their collaboration and developed their ability to integrate entrepreneurship in their curricula.
