Innovation Centre Denmark (ICDK) in Seoul highlighted pioneering Denmark-Korea cooperative ventures in science, technology and innovation, celebrating the 10th anniversary of its operation in Seoul.

From demographic change to a green transition, Denmark and Korea have championed advances across areas based on mutual trust and shared values, the Danish Embassy in Seoul said in a statement.

The ICDK is a joint initiative of the Danish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher Education and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. It currently operates in seven cities around the world -- Seoul, Copenhagen, Silicon Valley in California, Munich, Shanghai, Tel Aviv, and Bangalore in India. The center was established in Korea in 2013.
