A dream come true

When Jørgen came up with the idea of a science based theme park a lot of people shook their heads. But in 2005 Jørgen opened “Danfoss Universe” with the support of his wife Annette Clausen. The dream was (and continues to be) to help the new generation derive pleasure from nature and technology and inspire more people to become entrepreneurs. The park is a place where you can see, learn and experience how technology works and thereby plant seeds in the next generation of engineers, mechanics, software developers and inventers. Apart from giving young people a new and fun experience  ith science and technology, the park was deliberately placed on Als to help and support development in the region.
