IQP projects take place in or around Denmark's capital city, Copenhagen, located on the island of Zealand. The Danish population numbers 5.3 million and inhabits an area of 16,630 square miles. In addition to farming, Denmark has many diverse and technological industries, with emphasis on electronics, pharmaceuticals, shipbuilding, furniture craft, and alternative energy sources.
Denmark is an ideal place for IQP projects. Danish culture is open to interdisciplinary academic questioning, the foundation of every IQP. Danes are brought up to question and debate the impact of technology on the quality of life, and are leaders in utilizing positive aspects of modern technology while trying to lessen its negative impacts.
IQP projects in Denmark span a wide range of topics, with an emphasis on environmental issues and technology for people with disabilities. Alternative transportation, food quality, and technology to assist people with disabilities are topics of great interest to both the public and private sector. Not-for-profit agencies are also expected to sponsor several projects in the future.
Alternative transportation - Assessing bicycle theft, improving bicycle parking facilities, and communicating Denmark’s biking culture to tourists
Assisting people with disabilities - Creating a catalog of activities for visually impaired Danish youth in order to encourage more active lifestyles
Environmental issues - Assessing greenhouse gas emissions associated with food at Danish cafeterias, and developing a model to calculate waste from electrical and electronic equipment
