Despite the global economic downturn, Invest in Denmark brings more jobs to Denmark.

In 2011, Invest in Denmark helped to attract or retain 1.296 jobs in Denmark. A yearly evaluation from KPMG, a provider of audit services, shows that the number of jobs is up 49 per cent from 2010.

Divided between industries, 31 per cent of the jobs were within Cleantech, 27 per cent within ICT and 18 per cent within Biotech.

In the evaluation, companies were asked to evaluate the impact of certain factors on their decision to establish in Denmark. Most companies highlighted the supply of skilled labour and R&D capabilities in Denmark as having a positive impact on their establishment in the country.

Denmark – a global leader in wind power technology

A recent example of companies investing in Denmark is the Swiss/Danish company ROMO Wind that focuses on optimising the technical and operational performance of wind farms in operation.

The company was formed in Switzerland in 2011 by a group of experienced business people and technical experts within the wind turbine industry and shortly after, ROMO established the operational headquarters in Aarhus, Denmark – a global wind power hub.

- Denmark is internationally recognized as being a global leader of wind power technology in general and much of the predominant wind turbine designs still being used in the world are developed by Danish wind turbine engineers. Jutland in particular has a very large concentration of international wind power expertise, which ROMO has benefitted and recruited its staff from, says Poul Anker Lübker, Co-CEO of ROMO.
