21 Aug Silver Partners of Aarhus Symposium 2015

We proudly present SAS Institute, Neas Energy, Accenture Strategy, Deloitte, Maersk Group, Danske Bank, and DJØF as Silver Partners of Aarhus Symposium 2015.

It is essential for Aarhus Symposium to sign great partnerships due to the voluntary and student-driven nature of the organisation. As our partners provide the necessary means to keep the event free for students to attend, we aim to offer our partners a unique opportunity to meet some of the most ambitious students from Danish universities.

This year’s Silver Partners represent a great variety of business sectors, but they all share the vision of bringing leaders of today and leaders of tomorrow closer together. We are very grateful for their active interest in Aarhus Symposium.

28 Jun Important dates to mark

During the last two months, we have presented this year’s speakers participating in Aarhus Symposium Challenge, the theme of Battle of the Economists 2015, and the theme of Aarhus Symposium 2015.

• November 2: Battle of the Economists 2015
• November 6: Aarhus Symposium 2015

28 Jun The theme of Battle of the Economists 2015 is “Go Green, now?”

The theme of Battle of the Economists 2015 is “Go Green, now?”.

Danish companies have gained a special position in the international sustainable technology market over the years. They have experienced an impressive growth and Denmark is now exporting for more than 40 billion DKK every year; predicted to reach 100 billion DKK by 2020.

But should we invest in sustainable sources of today, or should we rather invest in sustainable sources of tomorrow?

At Battle of the Economists 2015, November 2, three leading economists will debate this theme and present their individual view on green technology and the future of the industry. The speakers will be announced in the fall.

Take a moment to watch our  short inspirational video questioning different perspectives of this topic.
