Since 2013, International House Copenhagen has worked to attract, welcome and retain international talents to Greater Copenhagen.
Among our many services, we register the approx. 20,000 new citizens who arrive every year. We have also developed a number of ’New in Denmark’ services centered around career, finding a place to live, childcare, leisure activities etc. – basically all the important aspects of life when moving to a new country.
The house has its own Advisory Board, which meets four times a year to discuss current challenges and opportunities for businesses and universities to recruit and retain international labor and students. The topics range from discussions about rules of entry to the country and housing challenges to digital platforms targeted internationals.
