The high value of co-locating
In recent years, Copenhagen Capacity and Copenhagen Science City have collaborated to attract international companies such as Danish-Chinese Organic Food Center. A company dedicated to obtaining certificates and permits for Danish organic food producers hoping to export to China. In choosing his company’s Danish location the CEO, John Liu, was highly aware of the value of co-locating close to research and development resources in an attractive part of Copenhagen.
Besides working strategically on the certification process, we are planning to use the proximity to the University of Copenhagen, the Metropolitan University College and Rigshospitalet, University of Copenhagen, to set up research and development projects focusing on organic babyfood”.
