- commercialising research results.
UCPH Lighthouse works to strengthen the interdisciplinary innovation across the University. The Innovation Centre helps to ensure that the university's knowledge is used for the benefit of people, society, and the environment.
The Office for Copenhagen Science City is placed in Research & Innovation. The office is responsible for the operation and development of the network organization for knowledge institutions, innovation hubs and businesses situated in the area surrounding Universitetsparken in Copenhagen. The area is a significant innovation district in Greater Copenhagen.
