The establishment of BGI’s European headquarters in COBIS is a good example of industry collaboration.

 

哥本哈根大学是丹麦最大教育研究机构,学校有三万七千多名学生和七千余名员工。哥本哈根大学是一所综合类大学,设有五所学院,分别是自然科学院、健康医学院、人文学院、社会科学院和法学神学院。学校有百余个系、实验室、研究中心和博物馆等,这些单位构成了哥本哈根大学的主体。

2012年,哥本哈根大学制定了面向中国的战略政策,并配有具体行动计划,旨在充分利用和发挥已有的以及即将建立的相关中国研究机构的作用。该行动计划包括定位哥本哈根大学所有与中国相关的活动,支持中丹教育研究课题,与哥本哈根商学院合作发展丹麦与中国问题的智库ThinkChina.dk。以上各项工作由哥本哈根大学跨学科机构活力亚洲倡议协调开展。

哥本哈根大学组织了多项有关中国的研究,也开展了许多与中国方面的合作。人文学院下的中国研究部门和北京大学及浙江大学建立了稳定的合作关系,每年约有40名哥本哈根大学学生在该合作框架下赴北大和浙大学习。自然科学院和医学院下均设有专项中丹研究基金中心,比如,丹中分子纳米电子学中心、中丹乳腺癌研究中心、医学基因组学灵北基金中心。哥本哈根大学也是中丹中心的积极合作伙伴。该中心设在北京,其工作内容包括多门学科领域的教育研究活动,比如,水资源和环境、纳米科学、可持续能源、生命科学和社会科学。华大基因将其欧洲总部建立在哥本哈根生物科技园就是工业合作的成功案例之一。
