Conference venue

Herning

The conference is held at Department of Business Development and Technology, Aarhus BSS, Aarhus University, Campus Herning, Birk Centerpark 15, 7400 Herning.

The city of Herning is known for its entrepreneurship drive and combination of production and service industries. The choice has been to select one specific industrial cluster as a privileged case for investigation: the textile and furniture industry, which has a strong presence in the area of Herning. Moreover, the textile industry’s collaboration with the city of Herning offers an innovative case of circular economy collaboration between public and private stakeholders. The choice of the textile industry is all the more relevant, as the Nordic Council has chosen this industry as a privileged partner in developing Nordic sustainability initiatives.
