Last weekend, the new SDC building was officially inaugurated. During the opening, SDC and Innovation Centre Denmark signed a Memorandum of Understanding that will enhance collaboration to develop and capture mutually beneficial objectives within education and science in the future.

To celebrate the collaboration, Innovation Centre Denmark and SDC co-organized a seminar on innovation in China. Among the speakers were experts from Techcode and Kairos Future as well as academics from SDC. Moreover, Innovation Centre Denmark held a reception to both celebrate its new partnership with SDC as well as to celebrate its own 10-year anniversary.

As part of Innovation Centre Denmark’s 10-year anniversary, ICDK video-interviewed experts, professors and students during the SDC opening. The interviews give great insights into the key forces of innovation in China as well as the good opportunities the Chinese market is offering Danish companies.
