Higher education

Knowledge Hub Zealand works to create an educational lighthouse in Region Zealand with epicentre in Kalundborg to ensure attraction and retainment of the skilled workforce needed by Scandinavia's largest biotech cluster.

We are committed to attracting and supporting business-relevant higher education in Region Zealand. We do this because the location of relevant higher education is of paramount importance in terms of attracting and retaining the skilled workforce that our pharmaceutical, biotech, and process industries need.

We cooperate with educational institutions to establish new educational opportunities in Kalundborg. These institutions include

University of Copenhagen (KU)

Technical University of Denmark (DTU)

The School of Mechanical Engineering in Copenhagen (Maskinmesterskolen København)

The Royal Academy (Det Kongelige Akademi)

University College Absalon
