Innovation Community

The ICDK Shanghai Innovation Community is a network of R&D directors, Innovation Executives and Officers in Danish companies operating in China and Chinese companies with a Danish subsidiary.

Innovation Community

The community meets 3-4 times a year. Each time for a discussion, normally with a keynote presentation, around a specific topic. The aim is to learn from leading experts in the field and from each other as well as to share insights, experiences and best practices concerning the management of innovation processes in China.


We emphasize the importance of networking and relationship building and the creation of an informal environment so that members can benefit from each other, also between the meetings. Usually, the meetings alternate between Beijing and Shanghai and are hosted by the community members or inspiring external settings.


The ICDK Shanghai Innovation Community members represent different sectors and business areas such as Clean Tech, Food, ICT and Life Science - all having focus on innovation and experience within R&D.


If you are interested in joining the community or have questions about our activities, please contact Executive Director, Søren Boutrup,
