The purpose of the Foundation is to develop and support innovative, inspirational and economically sustainable projects and initiatives that strengthen the competitiveness of Danish business and industry.

Competitiveness is crucial to the future success of Danish companies. Entertaiment and innovation are key elements to growth, welfare and job creation. Jointly, the scientific and educational institutions and the Danish business community can cooperate to create, market and export innovative business concepts and technologies that will make growth economically and environmentally viable.

On this basis the Danish Industry Foundation develops and supports initiatives and projects within the following areas:

In this way we support knowledge, development and innovation. We support innovative projects that generate new knowledge for the benefit of the Danish industry. Through inspiration and project development our means must help bridge cooperation between science and business.
