Talent attraction to the Danish Sound Ecosystem

Theme pic

Sound (Hearing Aid, Audio Experiences, Acoustics) is one of Denmark's strongest tech areas, contributing to the quality of life of people all over the world:

  • The Danish sound industry consists of six hundred companies, where sound is the primary or significant part of the strategic focus. The industry employs 52.000 employees, generates annual revenue of DKK 70 billion and exports more than DKK 60 billion, corresponding to 4% of total Danish exports. Read more in the latest industry analysis from the Danish Sound Cluster.
  • This industry is the result of strong research and education over decades at Danish universities. The Danish ecosystem for sound technology is in the top 4 among Danish technology sectors, scores above the average number of patents internationally (see ATV's analysis), and has a portfolio of more than 60 higher education programs related to "sound" in Denmark (see list here)

Despite this, the sector is not known in the wider community, nationally and internationally. With the increased competition for the best talents and the demand for continued innovation, it is crucial to create a more coordinated branding of the ecosystem, so that people in general - and talents in particular - get a better knowledge of the Danish sound ecosystem and the many opportunities for studies and jobs.

A branding campaign of an entire sector is of course only possible with a joint effort. Danish Sound Cluster has therefore started a "Talent Attraction" network in 2023 together with companies in the sound industry and external partners with the aim of:

  • Increase the number of new students for the studies in sound/acoustics at the educational institutions.
  • Increase the number of new talents to vacant positions in the sound industry.

Around 20 companies and organizations are represented in the network (see below) and together we plan joint talent attraction campaigns. Of course, the companies are also in competition to attract talent, but with joint efforts we can make the "pie bigger" - before we share it.

If your company is struggling to fill your vacancies and you work with Talent Attraction, Employer Branding, Recruitment or simply want to participate in the Talent Attraction project, contact Business Developer at Danish Sound Cluster, Jens Nedergaard,, + 45 3162 1315
