ICDK: Danish R&D-Intensive Companies

An understanding of R&D activities in China

Over the past 20-25 years, several large Danish companies have added R&D activities to their engagement in China. This report provides insights into their activities and their experiences in China.

The 30 most R&D-intensive companies in Denmark were invited to complete an online questionnaire; thirteen of those have R&D activities in China. Ten out of these 13 companies
participated in a qualitative interview through their VP or director for R&D activities in China.

The survey and interviews provide the data, which this report synthesises and presents.
