Copenhagen Science City

The Department of Chemistry is a part of Copenhagen Science City
Here, The University of Copenhagen collaborates with other research institutions, with start-up communities and with City- and Regional administration to create a world-class innovation district in the heart of the Danish capital. The shared goal is to attract companies and talent, to increase collaboration between researchers, students and knowledge intensive companies and to improve the urban qualities in the area.

Copenhagen Science City is one of Europe’s strongest innovation districts. It is located in the heart of Copenhagen, one of the world’s most liveable cities. It has a unique concentration of some of the best and brightest minds, highly educated students from all continents and a cluster of innovative companies based in inspiring co-working spaces and innovation hubs. Access to state-of-the-art research and transport infrastructure is abundant. Some of Denmark’s most attractive residential areas and recreational activities are nearby. Everything and everyone is within easy reach on foot or by bike)
