Chinese talents, Danish universities pair up


16:30, September 28, 2011

COPENHAGEN, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- Denmark on Tuesday launched the first-ever website which would enable talented Chinese students and professionals to connect directly with Danish universities and firms.

Backed by top Danish companies and universities, the Sino-Danish Network ( aims to become a platform for Danish companies to recruit from the pool of future Chinese talents, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The website's partners include leading Danish companies such as Arla Foods, Carlsberg, Chr. Hansen, Danfoss, Grundfos and Maersk, which will provide the network with open vacancies for Chinese students and professionals.

To promote itself, the Sino-Danish Network is also opening accounts in two of China's most popular social media sites, Sina Weibo and Renren, according to the statement.

For Chinese students and professionals, the website would offer an opportunity to make themselves directly visible to Danish universities and companies, it said.

Furthermore, the website will act as a kind of forum for Sino-Danish Alumni and connect experienced people around China with those from Denmark or Danish companies.

"Many Chinese already have relationships with Denmark either from working in a Danish company or simply by interest. Others are studying in Denmark or are alumni from Danish educational institutions," Danish Ambassador to China Friis Arne Petersen said Tuesday.

"We want to better connect with these 'Sino-Danes' in order to get a mutually inspiring network and community with exchanges in a range of fields, including professionally, culturally and socially. With the Sino-Danish Network, we now have a forum for gathering and developing this network," Petersen said.

The network is the first initiative of a Top Talent Program run by the Shanghai-based Innovation Center Denmark, a Danish diplomatic mission in China aimed at attracting Chinese talent to study at Danish universities or pursue a career with Danish companies.

The initiative will be followed by a campaign at several Chinese universities to promote Danish study programs and universities in October, and a Career Caravan event with Danish universities and companies in 2012.
