Innovation Fur is a development project launched by the island of Fur, Skive municipality, and EnergiMidt. The platform is the Danish island Fur. The vision is to transform Fur into a miniature model of the sustainable society of the future where modern technology is utilised to achieve a green profile. Innovation Fur is a ’Living Lab’, which is a way to explore innovative possibilities between public and private actors.
’We have a unique partnership between a group of dedicated citizens, a municipality with green ambitions, and a private company with experts on energy and fibre optics. We can all make various contributions which means that all aspects are taken into account. We want to create a project that may inspire citizens, municipalities, regions, and politicians. We also have a continuous dialogue with scientists, investors, and companies interested in testing new technology on Fur’-Gitte Wad Thybo, R&D Manager at EnergiMidt & project manager of Innovation Fur.
