Christian Agger Autzen: Innovation Management and Administration Intern

I have a bachelor’s degree in China Studies minoring in Sociology from Aarhus University and I am currently studying for a master’s degree in Global Studies.

I am especially interested in working with global sustainable solutions as well as the interplay between Denmark and China, making the Innovation Centre here in Shanghai an ideal place for me to go on an internship.

At the Innovation Centre, I work as the Innovation management and administration intern. In my daily work, that means I am primarily engaged in supporting the innovation specialists in various tasks, ranging from market research to translation from Chinese.

Søren Karlsen Glensholm: Innovation Management and Communication Intern

I have a background in China Studies and Information Studies from Aarhus University. I currently study a master’s degree in Global and Area Studies focusing on China’s role in a globalised world and working with regional, cross-regional and intercultural issues in companies, organisations, and public institutions.

I am deeply interested in intercultural communication, integrating diversity, and encounters between contrasting frames of understanding. During my time at the Innovation Centre in Shanghai, I wish to explore these areas in a Chinese context under the themes of new technology, international higher education, and intercultural teams.

My responsibilities include digital marketing strategy, internal/external communication as well as market research and concept development. I am particularly engaged in the Blockchain sector where I use my Chinese language proficiency to gain a deeper understanding of different issues and to solve tasks more comprehensively.

Rikke Voss: Design and E-commerce Intern 

I am an undergrad student with a passion for international relations and sustainable growth solutions to global businesses and political challenges. I am in the final year of my bachelor’s degree in International Business and Politics at Copenhagen Business School.

I have found a keen interest in the emergence of Chinese Political economy, initiating me to seek this amazing internship. With my motivation for continuous learning and passion for the Chinese market economy, I saw this internship as an exciting opportunity to unfold my academic knowledge with hands on experience in an international work environment.

My primary responsibilities under this internship as a part of the Trade council and cross border E-commerce team will be to assist and work with promotional projects of Danish firms that are expanding their business to the Chinese market.

Nicolai Meyer Lehmann Lundsbjerg: Public Diplomacy, Media and Culture Intern

After finishing a bachelor’s degree in Communication & IT, I found my direction of interest had gradually turned towards Chinese affairs. This led to my second bachelor’s degree from the University of Copenhagen, this time in Chinese Studies. I am currently studying my master’s degree of International Relations at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

Being a student of international politics, communication, and Chinese language, the position at the Consulate allows me to draw from my experience and gives me a unique insight into the backdrop of cross-state collaborations. It lets me use my skillset in an official Danish context, which naturally drives me to be even more passionate about projects I engage in.

My role here at the Consulate General in Shanghai is in the Public Diplomacy, Media & Culture department, where I will be generating social media postings about our events, and otherwise engage with opportunities of bridging Denmark and China closer together, both culturally and commercially.

Valdemar Søsted Wilsdahl: Investment Intern

I hold a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from the University of Aarhus and my internship at the consulate is part of my master’s degree in Political Science at the same university.

After visiting China for the first time in 2015, I have been a passionate observer of the country’s development. The internship enables me to pursue both my professional interest in promoting Denmark and a personal interest in Chinese culture and language.

Working as an investment intern with Invest in Denmark, I help to promote investments by Chinese and other Asian investors in Denmark. Through my studies, I have developed a deep understanding of how the Danish society is structured, which comes in handy when promoting Denmark as an ideal country for foreign investments.
