Innovation Centre Denmark is an organization that stems from an inter-ministerial partnership whose mission is to elevate Danish science and innovation through collaborations with world-leading innovation ecosystems and ultimately strengthen Danish innovation, development, growth, and employment. Its areas of expertise include life science, green transition, and technology. The project was mandated by the Danish Government through The Government’s Action Plan for Economic Diplomacy, with the ambition to uncover how and on which areas, technology will have an impact or domination on the future of business science and innovation.


In a world witnessing the need for environmental-friendly technologies that solve societal issues, biological solutions have progressively imposed themselves as being critical to addressing tomorrow’s different Biotech Spaces challenges. It is important that the development of alternative proteins address the need for much more sustainable food production, especially when it comes to fermentation and cell-structured meat spaces.

Precision Agriculture

Agricultural technology (Agtech) provides timely, accurate, site-specific crop information by among other things, monitoring the soil and plant physicochemical parameters and obtaining data in real-time. It will revolutionise the lives of people who work in agriculture and for those depending on the ecosystems. With a market of farmers willing to adopt new technologies and a country with a wide range of geo-climatic conditions, India is an ideal place to develop precision agriculture solutions.

The conference is hosted by partnership between TechBBQ and Innovation Centre Denmark.

COP27: Steering the green transition in agriculture and food production

Join us at COP27 at the Danish Pavilion: ‘Steering the green transition in agriculture and food production –  How innovative solutions can both ensure safe and nutritious food and be part of the solution to address the climate crisis’. At the side event, you will meet leading high-level profiles from the Danish and international agricultural and food scene. 

Climate change, climate variability, and extremes are affecting agricultural productivity, food production, and natural resources, with huge impacts on food systems – especially on the African continent.  

A transition to more sustainable food systems is needed to combat climate change effectively. The intersection between food systems and climate is clear, and there is a real need to connect the two. 

Therefore, we must ensure efficient and sustainable food production where everyone, everywhere has regular access to enough nutritious food.  

It is about joining forces enabling us to bring together the best of our joint expertise in supply chains and sustainable agriculture and deliver value to farmers, businesses, and the climate.  

The side event is part of the AIM for Climate Roadshow at COP27. It will showcase how climate-smart agriculture and innovative solutions can empower agriculture and food production to be part of the solution to address the climate crisis and at the same time ensure a safe, nutritious, and reliable supply of food for all.

Lancering af Regeringens eksporthandlingsplan for fødevareklyngen og Food Nation Branding Academy

Fødevareklyngens fremtidige eksport til de globale markeder

Danmarks fødevareklynge bidrager stærkt til det danske samfund, og eksporten spiller en vigtig rolle for vækst og beskæftigelse i Danmark. Fødevareklyngen har nogle markante styrkepositioner, og eksportvirksomhederne leverer sunde og sikre produkter til hele verden. Den internationale efterspørgsel på bæredygtige produkter og løsninger inden for fødevaresikkerhed og ressourceeffektivitet er stigende, og har danske virksomheder en enestående mulighed for at udnytte.

Samtidig er usikkerheden på internationale markeder høj. Vi skal forholde os til markante forandringer på markederne og alvorlige konsekvenser som følge af klimaforandringer og sikkerhedspolitiske kriser. Det understreger vigtigheden i at stå tæt sammen omkring eksportarbejdet.

Du inviteres til en dag i fødevareklyngens tegn med lancering af regeringens eksporthandlingsplan for fødevareklyngen. Efterfølgende afholder Food Nation Branding Academy med fokus på markedsføring af danske produkter og løsninger på internationale markeder gennem positionering inden for bæredygtighed.

I forlængelse af lancering af regeringens eksporthandlingsplan for fødevareklyngen, inviterer Food Nation i samarbejde med Landbrug & Fødevarer til Branding Academy med fokus på eksportmarkederne Kina, Tyskland og USA.

Hvad efterspørger internationale beslutningstagere, og hvordan kan danske virksomheder positionere sig stærkt?
