GO GLOCAL is a new initiative that aims to highlight Aarhus as an attractive career destination by contributing to the internationalization of the city. The cornerstone of GO GLOCAL is the visualization of the many international actors in Aarhus together with the granting of two awards at a conference on 30 January. At this conference two international actors or companies will be recognized for their efforts and their ability to inspire others. The UIC has been nominated for the GO GLOCAL People’s Choice Award.

GO GLOCAL Award and The People’s Choice Award

GO GLOCAL will award two prizes at the conference: the GO GLOCAL Award and the GO GLOCAL - The People’s Choice Award. The awards aim to recognize two international actors, who have made a significant effort in incorporating going glocal to their strategy.
