About AI Innovation House

AI Innovation House will become a state-of-art AI centre, bringing knowledge of digitalisation and artificial intelligence to eye level so it can be translated into practical solutions and boost growth for Danish companies.

AI Innovation House will offer unique exhibition, labs and demonstration facilities covering 5,200 m2 with space for approx. 200 knowledge workers. As an international digitalisation state-of-art AI centre, we expect over 5,000 visitors and international delegations annually for conferences, workshops, lectures and innovation projects, etc. With the opening scheduled for early 2021, we have already started AI activities in DANDY Business Park. The house will have many exciting demonstration facilities:

      • Collaboration Labs, Blue Box Co-Creation Lab, Smart U Lab, 3D conference centre and several innovation studios (see facilitates).
      • The facility can be utilised for joint innovation projects, dissemination and exhibitions, product presentations, export promotion, skills development, etc. We can also support manufacturing processes from product development through to consumer feedback and decision-making on (trial) production – Human First.
      • A great physical setup for startup companies and SMEs seeking to work with digitalisation and artificial intelligence, etc.

AI Innovation House builds on a solid foundation in terms of ideas and business economy. The investors behind the project are Bagger-Sørensen Invest A/S, CASA and Insero.
