Service Design in Copenhagen

“The service economy is the new paradigm in most knowledge driven economies. The service industry accounts for large proportion of the Gross National Product of several countries like the UK and USA. Denmark – traditionally an industrial nation – is placing a lot of emphasis on knowledge based enterprises and globalisation.
