Networking in Denmark

23. Januar 2023

In 2012, director and initiator Kirsten Jung developed and launched the SCHULBAU fair. Since then, it has brought together school construction professionals for annual trade fairs and networking salons in a number of Germany’s largest cities, including Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Cologne, Dresden, Vienna and Cologne. Now it is coming to Copenhagen (DK) for the first time on 13 and 14 June 2023.

“For more than ten years, I have been bringing together architects, municipalities, engineers, private and public developers and investors across national borders in all areas of learning construction. In Denmark and Germany, I work closely with C.F.. Møller Architects, Danish Architects, BDA (Association of German Architects), Bundesstiftung Baukultur, Montag Stiftung Jugend und Gesellschaft, DGNB, Building Green Council, the major German building authorities as well as important associations and federations in the construction industry. In 2023, I will continue the success with my first two-day event in Copenhagen and I look forward to inviting Danish and German professionals from the industry,” says Kirsten Jung, who works and lives in both Hamburg and Copenhagen. She will now share her many years of experience in German-speaking countries and establish contacts between Danish companies and her extensive network in Germany.

‘I want to create an international think tank that can inspire the whole sector with new ideas. Here, the topic of sustainable learning is at the centre of the Danish-German exchange of knowledge, ideas and resources. We can benefit from international cooperation and pave the way for the school of the future with partnerships. Danes bring new knowledge and experience – they are international leaders in digitalisation and sustainability. And as we all know, innovative ideas are in high demand in Germany. This applies not least to German school construction, for which EUR 40 billion has been earmarked up to 2040. For new construction, renovation, sustainability, recycling and refurbishment, and everything that can create the best environment for today’s teaching and learning. I am bringing together all the players around a large market.

The field of learning buildings ranges from daycare centres to university campuses and is always at the centre of our activities. In Germany, several of my German-Danish collaborations have already borne fruit. Several teams have both won major tenders and realised them in practice. I will now take these successes back to Copenhagen. All Danish and German industry players are hereby invited to two days of experiences, matchmaking, new knowledge and exciting relationships.”

Education construction is crisis-proof

SCHULBAU/SCHOOL BUILDING is undoubtedly one of the most crisis-proof platforms in construction today. In a situation where there are too many pupils*, too few teachers and too few or too run-down schools, everything needs to be improved and resolved as quickly as possible. Since 2012, the German SCHULBAU trade fair has brought together the sector for good and visionary school construction in major cities such as Hamburg, Berlin, Dresden, Frankfurt, Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Vienna. Managing partner and project manager Kirsten Jung will focus on Denmark in 2023 and organise the international school fair for the first time under the name SCHULBAU/SKOLEBYGYGGERI in Copenhagen in cooperation with her two companies CUBUS MEDIEN Verlag GmbH and Salooning Green Future ApS.

On 13 and 14 June 2023, the Danish and German industries are invited to meet for two days. The programme includes forward-looking Danish and international speakers, panel discussions, up to 50 stands and, not least, networking and matchmaking between experts from Denmark and the German-speaking countries.

Kirsten Jung and her team have many years of experience in cross-border cooperation and will present a selection of successful partnerships that have participated in German tenders thanks to SCHULBAU’s initiative and commitment. All activities will focus on best practices for innovative and sustainable learning buildings, ranging from day care centres to university campuses.

The fair and networking sessions will be organised in English/Danish/German. Presentations and workshops will be organised in English.

The Networking Festival is the platform for new and personal relationships for a wide range of professionals from the school and learning construction sector. During all breaks and in the evenings, there will be opportunities to make new contacts and discuss new business opportunities through relaxed and casual exchanges and networking.


Let’s get going! Join our study tours to schools in Copenhagen. Immediately after the fair, there will be an opportunity to visit two schools in Copenhagen, where the responsible architects will talk personally with the participants – both about the physical setting and the idea behind the building. Each school will be visited by 25 people, with a total of 50 places available. Must be booked separately and in advance.
TIME: On 14 June, buses will run directly from the fair to the schools. Departure at 16.15. The tour will end at approximately 18.00.


As something very special for Copenhagen, we have invited amazing and motivational coaches who will come both days with great workshops and encourage people directly on the spot to Mita
