Odense is Denmark's third-largest city with around 200,000 inhabitants and has the advantage of being located in the heart of Denmark.

Odense gathers some of Denmark’s most interesting activities, within robotics and health tech, and that makes Odense a great meeting point. We provide strong public support to new investors and companies that relocate to Odense, and over the next 10 – 15 years, investments of around EUR 3.2bn will transform Odense into an internationally renowned city of knowledge.
