Science and innovation are at the heart of government strategy for promoting prosperity and growth. Research and knowledge is increasingly developed and transferred through international collaboration which provides opportunities to work with the best in the world, exchange students and researchers, and gain access to large scale international facilities; leading to mutual benefits for the UK and Denmark.
For an introductory brief which covers the local Science and Innovation landscape, UK priorities and successes in Denmark, read the UK Science and Innovation Network Country Snapshot.
To promote international collaboration the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office jointly fund the UK Science and Innovation Network (SIN), based in 28 countries around the world.
SIN Denmark exists to facilitate policy exchange between the UK and Denmark, and to stimulate collaborative partnerships between the two countries – particularly focussing on Horizon 2020 matchmaking.
In addition to supporting policy exchange, proactive SIN Denmark work focuses on four strategic areas:
- Life Science
- Low Carbon Technologies
In support of the UK Science and Innovation strategy SIN Denmark is part of the SIN Nordic team and shares these four priorities across the region.
We aim to proactively seek out UK-Danish collaboration in our priority areas of interest, and to reactively assess any potential projects that are suggested to us. If you are looking to work with researchers or innovators in the UK or Denmark then please get in touch with the SIN Denmark officers.
