DNA of Export

The DNA of Export has been developed in close cooperation between the Danish Export Association and the Tuborg Research Centre for Globalisation and Firms.

The DNA of Export specifies the DNA of successful exporters. This is a unique research-centered but highly practical recipe for how firms succeed in their international activities. The recipe is based on international research results and numerous studies and findings from the Tuborg Research Centre using data from Statistics Denmark’s registers covering all Danish firms.

For further information, please visit the Export DNA website (in Danish only) and see the special issue of Eksportmagasinet.
