The board of Center Denmark


The organizations, represented on the board, have joined forces to establish Center Denmark as a neutral platform where universities, TSOs, DSOs, public organizations and private companies can work together to accelerate the green transition through intelligent data solutions.

The right to appoint board members

The organizations with the right to appoint board members are: EWII, Energinet, Thorsen Invest ApS, DTU, SDU, AAU and AU. The Board of Directors may appoint 2-3 new Board members.

These organizations do not own Center Denmark, as Center Denmark is a self-owned organization. All partners in Center Denmark, regardless of whether they are part of the board or not, have the same access to technical content and thus equal benefits and the opportunity for value creation.

Independence

Board members are appointed by their respective organizations or the board itself. The Board of Directors regularly participates in development activities that are closely linked and anchored in the fund. The board is independent.
