Top Talent 2015 and Denmark Days
We are looking forward to presenting Danish top institutions and companies at the successful education- and career fair Denmark Days on the 20th of October in Shanghai and on the 23rd in Beijing. This year, 12 Danish educational institutions and four Danish companies are attending, and we expect 1200 students to participate at the fairs.
Anniversary for diplomatic relations between China and Denmark 
ICDK gathered 50 people at the Royal Danish Consulate to mark the 65th years of anniversary for China and Denmark diplomatic relations. The event was a great success, and once again highlighted the common interest and the strong relation between Denmark and China. Professor Lars Bo Kaspersen from University of Copenhagen gave an interesting presentation about globalisation and the relations between Denmark and China. Afterwards three Danish short films were shown to give a glimpse of the Danish movie-culture.

On the occasion of the visit to Shanghai by Mr. Bent Hansen, Chairman of Central Denmark Region, and as an extension of the Innovation Project on Super Hospitals, ICDK organises a DRG Application & Hospital Innovation and Development Forum on the 16th of September in Shanghai. With participations from hospital leaders, healthcare professionals, policy-makers and industry innovators, we wish to strengthen the ties and foster innovation, business and policy partnerships between the two countries within hospital innovation.

Gaming and Animation Camp 2015 successfully held
Did you know that only a few Danish game developers export to China today?
