Powering the developments within the Danish food and agriculture sectors is also the Danish universities and many outstanding research and innovation facilities.

Recognising the importance of food and agricultural production today and into the future, both the Danish government and the industry itself are continually investing significant sums in research and innovation within the food and agricultural sectors.

Key focus areas are: veterinary safety, food safety and hygiene, sustainability and production optimisation, spanning from knowledge generation and sharing to the development of sophisticated control system and to the development of innovative green technologies and food and feed ingredients.

Significant resources are also invested in the development of new methods for dealing with global challenges such as environmental management, sustainable energy production, food waste reduction and not least the challenge of feeding an ever growing global population.

This research is led by the top Danish universities but in close collaboration with the Danish food and agriculture industry and the Danish authorities.

In 2009, Agro Food Park was established to continue this long tradition of a close cooperation between companies, researchers and educational institutions in the Danish food cluster. It is a composition of 75 diverse member organisations who are located in the business park in Aarhus. Agro Food Park aims to shape the future of food and agriculture by reaching the position as number one center for innovation and growth both in Denmark and globally. 

An opportunity special for young farmers in Japan is the exchange programme offered by Japan Agricultural Exchange Council. Through this organisation, Japanese students are given the chance to obtain knowledge about the agricultural industry abroad and acquaint themselves with management skills and international awareness. Denmark has several times hosted young Japanese people, who aimed to learn about the Danish agricultural industry. Please find more information about JAEC in the menu to right.
