MADE is the Danish Cluster for Advanced Manufacturing We are the hub for the creation of solutions for tomorrow’s manufacturing businesses through research, innovation and education.
MADE is a certified Gold Cluster and is designated the Danish Cluster for Advanced Manufacturing by the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science and the Danish Board of Business Development. We work closely with the other Danish national clusters tasked with facilitating collaboration between researchers and companies and thereby channelling increased innovation community-wide.
MADE’s field of strength is advanced manufacturing. We connect manufacturing companies, RTOs and higher-education institutions through innovative partnerships, projects and activities involving stakeholders from all over Denmark and all industries, regardless of company size, in order to generate, apply, and share manufacturing expertise and know-how to enable Denmark to compete globally.
MADE was established in 2014 when companies, foundations, associations, and science and technology research centres joined forces to create a national platform for boosting Danish manufacturing through applied research, development and innovation.
Our vision is to create and support world-class Danish manufacturing.
MADE is an association of companies, higher-education institutions and knowledge providers partnered with a diverse range of other actors, including the regional Danish Business Hubs. As MADE members, we share our knowledge regardless of scale, industry or location. Just under nine in ten corporate members of MADE are small and medium-sized enterprises with up to 250 employees.
MADE regularly accepts new members. If you are interested in gaining access to MADE’s opportunities and joining our network of manufacturing stakeholders, click the button below.

MADE as an international enabler
If you are interested in global partnering within one of MADE’s three tracks, MADE can help facilitate contact with ideal partners outside Denmark. We offer assistance in these areas: overcoming specific challenges or stress-testing advanced new manufacturing technologies; gaining fresh inspiration from European first-movers; testing your company’s digital maturity level; advising on the application of Industry 4.0 technologies and digitalisation; and joining transnational multi-stakeholder projects and networks.
We do so through these initiatives: International demonstration projects, MADE Field Trips, ADMA TranS4MErs, EDIH – European Digital Innovation Hub, EIT Manufacturing and DIH2.
