About the network

Danish Sound Innovation Network (Danish Sound) functions as a hub for research environments, businesses, public organizations, policy makers and professional users.

Danish Sound was established on January 1st 2009 and is part of the Danish national innovation infrastructure supported by a grant from the Danish Agency for Institutions and Educational Grants under the Ministry of Higher Education and Science.



Danish Sound Innovation Network has existed since 2009 and is part of the European cluster cooperation and has been benchmarked (i.e. evaluated) four times by the European Cluster Excellence Initiative. This has led to three bronze EU quality labels for Cluster Management Excellence in 20112013, and 2015. In 2016 the network took a step upwards and received a silver certificate.



In 2025 Denmark is among the 5 leading centers in the world for innovative sound related products and solutions.
