Danish universities and companies attract Chinese talent

October 18, 2012
Danish universities and companies are cooperating to attract talented Chinese students during two career days in China. More than 2,000 students are expected to attend.

More highly-educated Chinese are being encouraged to look at opportunities in Denmark. Seven Danish universities and 12 of Denmark’s largest companies are in China marketing their education and career opportunities during two Denmark Days. The aim is to attract Chinese talent and knowledge while ensuring Danish growth and Chinese investment in Denmark.

Denmark Days in China

Denmark Days will be held on 18 October and 23 October in Fudan University in Shanghai and Peking University in Beijing respectively. The career and education fair is arranged by Innovation Centre Denmark, Shanghai as part of the Sino-Danish Network.

More than 2,000 Chinese students are expected to attend to learn more about Danish education and career opportunities.

Large events

The career days will be the largest Denmark has ever held in China. They are part of the Sino-Danish Network’s marketing of Danish education and career opportunities in Danish companies to Chinese students and graduates. The marketing campaign since October 2011 has involved a number of events at Chinese universities and the establishment of an alumni network for Chinese graduates who have studied in Denmark.

As part of the campaign, the Sino-Danish Network has set up a website sinodanishnetwork.com, aimed at Chinese students and others wanting to learn more about Danish educational and career opportunities. The network has also been very active on Chinese social media.

Partners in the network include all Danish universities and 15 of the largest Danish companies in China.

Participating Danish universities and companies

  • Aalborg University, Aarhus University, Copenhagen Business School, Technical University of Denmark, University of Copenhagen, Roskilde University and the University of Southern Denmark.
  • AP Møller Mærsk, Carlsberg, Chr. Hansen, Coloplast, DESMI, Grundfos, Haldor Topsøe, LEGO Group, Lundbeck, NNE Pharmaplan, Novo Nordisk and Novozymes.
