Ørestad is – and has – everything that characterizes an international innovation district. Leading top-tier international companies, small and medium sized enterprises that cluster and connect with cutting-edge research and educational institutions, key public institutions as well as start-ups, business accelerators and incubators. In addition, a highly sophisticated infrastructure system connects the entire city district with the outside world. And with such proximity to both the city center and the largest Nordic airport, Ørestad’s geographic location provides a natural global outlook and sets a strong framework for our member companies to pursue and attract educated and skilled employees and talents that fit their international workplaces.
In Denmark, sector innovation will be an important driver for future jobs, growth and innovation. We see a great potential in Ørestad for working together to make the city district a hub for knowledge, creativity, and sustainable solutions. Innovation districts are not just a good idea, they are also good business – good business for all kinds of members and stakeholders.
This is where Ørestad Innovation City Copenhagen (ØICC) has its mandate. ØICC is the international innovation district in Copenhagen, located in the capital’s most international area: Ørestad.
But we are more than that. We are a strategic, cross-sector innovation partnership of visionary companies, leading-edge educational institutions, public and cultural institutions, and other relevant stakeholders. We are pioneers who first and foremost want to make an impact together. Take a look here to see who we already are, and meet our Board and Secretariat.
