Future jobs, high technology, and the value of education relative to preserving production jobs in Denmark were the topics pinpointed when Danish Minister for Science, Innovation and Higher Education Morten Østergaard (RV) visited the aerospace, security, and space group Terma at Lystrup on 24 September, 2012.
As Denmark’s responsible minister for participation in the European space programs via the European Space Agency (ESA), space systems was also a natural key topic for the visit.
After the visit, Minister for Science, Innovation and Higher Education Morten Østergaard, who is elected in the East Jutland constituency, said “The interplay between knowledge and technological production at the highest level is and must be one of Denmark’s major strengths. I have seen several examples of this today. The government targets efforts to ensure that the educational system becomes increasingly geared to the demand for highly skilled labour which will increase in future and which is important when it comes to preserving production and production jobs in Denmark.“
For Terma, it is crucial that Denmark continues to train highly skilled labour in order for the company to maintain its position within the defence, security, and space sectors. ”Global competition is constantly increasing, and in order to preserve production in Denmark, we must be better, more skilled, and more efficient than our competitors. Therefore, it is important that Denmark continues to prioritise a strong educational system and thereby is capable of preserving the technological jobs in the country,” says Terma CEO & President Jens Maaløe.
