..., the capital of Denmark, is located in a major knowledge area with 10 universities, 165,000 students and 16,000 scientists.
... is compact, safe and eco-friendly and in 2013 Copenhagen was named World’s Most Livable City and the Danes were again ranked World’s Happiest People.
... Copenhageners have an easy-going approach to life – but don't be fooled. Behind the relaxed facade lies a steely professionalism and a high awareness of quality. According to the U.N., the Danish workforce is among the world’s most productive and in 2014 Copenhagen was named Europe's smartest city thanks to its sustainable targets and focus on green growth.
