How Denmark built a world-class robotics ecosystem

The first seeds to Denmark’s robotics cluster were sown in the late 1980s as a partnership between a local university and a steel shipyard that needed flexible and precise welding robots. In the 2000s, Denmark went on to spawn globally-recognized firms like Universal Robots and Mobile Industrial Robots. Today, the country has a full-fledged ecosystem of 500+ companies that have attracted over EUR 990 million in investments and employ 12,700 people.


What enabled Denmark to become a global hotspot for robotics?


According to Søren Elmer Kristensen, CEO of Odense Robotics, the Danish cluster succeeded in creating a positive narrative around robotics and automation as technological solutions to critical challenges, such as climate change, global labor markets, the aging population and resulting labor shortages.


In his keynote address, he will share how early partnerships between academia, industry, local government and a trade union is helping the industry reach its full potential across sectors and industries.
