Lighthouse offers working facilities to anyone who wants to work with innovation and entrepreneurship. The center has more than 1200 square metres of facilities for both individuals and groups. Visit the innovation center at Tagensvej 16A and meet our entrepreneurs.  

Introduction meeting

Our innovation consultants are ready to talk to you about your idea or start-up. You can use the sessions to get advice on your ideas, help to get started, learn more about innovation or how to get ECTS credits for attending an innovation course at UCPH. Book an innovation consultant.

Events, hackathons and inspirational talks

Lighthouse organises events, hackathons and inspirational talks, usually in collaboration with external players. The center makes an effort to include the outside world in the University’s work with innovation. Businesses and organisations contribute with challenges for student case competitions and hackathons.


If you want to work with innovation and entrepreneurship, but you lack an idea to work with, please contact us to get help with ideation. We offer many services and courses at UCPH as well as events that can make your ideas bloom. 

Entrepreneurship programs

Lead-in and Health Innovators are our entrepreneurial programs for students and researchers with an idea or a start-up business. The courses will focus on your idea/start-up and you as an entrepreneur. You will also be part of a strong network of entrepreneurs across disciplines and industries. Once you have completed either Lead-in or Health Innovators, you have the opportunity to become a member of Lighthouse, which gives you access to our extended offer and 24/7 access to the house.

Entrepreneurial internship with ECTS credits 

An entrepreneurial internship is for those who are keen on testing their skills in practice. At UCPH, you can integrate innovation and entrepreneurship into your degree programme. You can work with your own idea/start-up or do an internship in an existing start-up business. Please contact one of our innovation consultants at your faculty to learn more about your options.
