In Lyngby, Novozymes is building a new research and innovation center. Named Novozymes Innovation Campus, it will be situated in the area around DTU in Lyngby, while not being far away from their main office in Bagsværd. The center will contain laboratory and research areas facilities. It will bridge a link to the educational end research area at DTU by having classrooms, cafés and a small cinema, with the ambition of creating a global hub for biotech research. On top of this, it will have a science learning center where students and visitors can learn more about biology and nature.
First phase of the building will be 30,000 sqm. It will consist of four buildings in 2-3 story heights. Around the buildings will be a park and nature trails for public use. The concept of the project is for it to be in harmony with and complement the surrounding nature. The whole site is 140,000 sqm. which contains area for further expansions in the future – which Novozymes have planned for. The current building area is designed to have room for 800 employees – further expansion will be able to room 2,000-2,500 more employees.
