The innovation district of Copenhagen Science City is considered one of the strongest assets in the region according to the Financial Times-publication fDi Magazine.

Keeps rewriting investor maps

fDi Magazine bestowed the honour on Copenhagen Capacity, which is Greater Copenhagen’s promotion and investment attraction agency. It has played a leading role in welcoming major international investors including US-based IBM and Japan-based Hitachi. The agency works by actively assessing the global economic landscape, and by ensuring that Greater Copenhagen is on investors’ maps.

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”. John Liu, CEO, Danish-Chinese Organic Food Center.

Food science is one of twelve research fields where Greater Copenhagen has a leading global position paired with a high potential for investment.

fDi Magazine is considered the world’s premier publication for the business of globalisation.
