Even though Sonderborg is not the biggest educational city in the world, it is a city where it is manageable to get an overview and where you can find a close-knit community among the people here. This is attractive to many young people that find themselves in Sonderborg – not only does Sonderborg have a strong and active student environment, but it is also very international and open and there is room for everyone!
Sonderborg is known for its close cooperation between educational institutions and companies, for example in regards to teaching, projects, internships, and study projects.
Here you can find some of the country’s biggest global industrial groups with about 2000 smaller companies. A substantial part of these work with technology. The area has strong cluster networks especially regarding mechatronic and green energy, CLEAN, but also in regards to food safety and welfare technology.
