Innovation Centre Denmark is building bridges between research institutions and tech companies in Denmark and Boston area; accelerate the entry of Danish companies into Greater Boston Area; and facilitate research cooperation and assist Danish companies in being on the cutting edge of new technologies. Boston is the latest addition to the group of eight Danish Innovation Centres globally.

Innovation Centre Denmark is a partnership between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark and the Ministry of Higher Education and Science in Denmark.

We focus on:

  • Life Science
  • AI & Robotics
  • Renewable energy and related technologies

Why Boston?

Boston represents more than 50 research institutions and a vast number of R&D centres from leading international tech companies. Its cutting-edge epicentre, Kendall Square, is known to be the world’s most innovative square kilometre and resides more than 500 startups and more than 1000 biotech companies, which has positioned Kendall Square as a stronghold of Life Science technologies. Other distinct tech areas include CleanTech and AI.

But it is not just the size and density that makes Kendall Square unique. It is the interconnection and mutual relations that makes the ecosystem extraordinary. The boundaries between universities like MIT and companies like IBM are paper-thin, which is a reason for Bostons flourishing innovative ecosystem. We are here to assist you in tapping into that.

Examples of Existing Denmark - Boston relations

  • Long lasting research collaborations specifically in clinical research and other LifeScience areas.
  • The Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science’s fellowship agreement with MIT for PhDs and PostDocs.
  • The MISTI Programme, that matches MIT students with Danish research institutions and companies for internships
  • A growing number of Danish companies are located in Boston in order to be close to the unique ecosystem. Big Danish pharma companies Novo Nordisk and Leo Pharma both have offices in Boston and Ørsted are driving their US offshore wind farm projects from their office in Boston.
