The University of Southern Denmark

The University of Southern Denmark constitutes the research element in the UAS Denmark partnership and has based their advanced UAS laboratories in the airport test center. The university is among many other disciplines recognized for its robotics research – and since 2015 for its  dedicated UAS research center as well.

The City of Odense

With a history that goes more than 1,000 years back, Odense is one of the oldest cities in Denmark. A legacy deriving from the Vikings all the way into today’s transformation to a modern Danish city. 

Odense is Denmark’s third largest city with just above 200,000 inhabitants. The population is steadily growing, and Odense is also well known for the tech development with a great robotic cluster.
