Day 1

June 11, 2018

The main event will be at one of the old and most impressive buildings in Copenhagen, Børsen. The building was built by King Christian IV during 1618- 1624 enabling it a symbol of Copenhagen as a trade centre and metropolis. Originally Børsen was used as a commodity exchange and this is why it is nominated as one of the first exchanges in Europe.

The program begins with an introduction by the conference organizers followed by key note speakers (see ‘Speakers‘). The participants will subsequently be divided into a number of parallel tracks which address cross-sector collaboration within a number of predefined areas.

Conference Day 1 will end with a dinner. The dinner will also be used to announce Life Time Achievement Awards and Best Paper Awards.


Conference Dinner June 11th. takes place in “Skuespilhuset” a part of the Royal Danish Theatre. We will dine at the Restaurant Ofelia there offers good food and the most beautiful view in town. The Dinner will include a drink, a tree course dinner including wine and water and end with coffee/tea
