How we work

Looking for international skills?

Global Danes not only have access to international talents but are also talents themselves. 4.000 Danish engineers live abroad (IDA). 22.000 Danes return to Denmark each year looking for jobs and to reestablish themselves in their home country (DST). Our mission is to engage our global Danes to brand Denmark and promote job opportunities as well as encourage them to return to a job in Denmark.

NEW PROJECT WILL INCREASE DANISH SME’S EXPORT AND INNOVATION

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Denmark often experience challenges with language, culture and lack of networks when seeking new export markets. A new project driven by DANIAS will change this.

The project, funded by The Danish Industry Foundation, will build a network of Danes based in Germany, France, the United Kingdom and Switzerland. By utilizing the specialist knowledge that already abounds among Danes abroad, the project aims at increasing Danish SME’s export and innovation.
