A City of the Future

In Aarhus, we are constantly rethinking how we do business and how to create the best conditions for businesses. The entire urban region is growing, and new knowledge hubs, innovation centres, infrastructure and technological solutions are developing fast.

Our shared vision is to create solutions to global challenges. Aarhus University is at the forefront of creating these solutions along with our innovation hubs within the fields of cleantech, food, healthcare, ICT, design, architecture and fashion.

What really sets Aarhus apart from other European cities is our long tradition of collaboration between companies, research and users. This tradition, combined with an interdisciplinary and user-oriented approach to development, is one of the main factors driving the strong innovation culture in Aarhus.

The city shares a belief in the power of rethinking to make a real difference. For example, through a mix of public solutions, public participation and close cooperation with the business and industry, Aarhus will be completely carbon-neutral by 2030.

Aarhus is an open and innovative city with a great diversity of people. These strengths help us to maintain growth and development.
Jacob Bundsgaard, Mayor of Aarhus
