Mads Clausen Institute - Innovation crossing borders

The Mads Clausen Institute (MCI) addresses key societal challenges of the 21st century with a focus on climate, smart production, health and innovation.

Our research competences cover topics from nanotechnology, mechatronics and electronics, upscaling of solar cells and other smart devices to innovation and entrepreneurship.


In the spirit of our name giver, our institute cooperates intensively with companies especially in the Danish-German border region. This transfer of knowledge from science to industry addressing societal needs strengthens both our research and education.


MCI is located both at the main campus of SDU on Fyn and at Alsion in Sønderborg -  providing inspiring umbrellas for the institute’s research, development and educational activities.
