International Community is an integrated part of Erhverv Aarhus (Aarhus Business Network). From our base in Aarhus we cooperate with companies and organizations throughout Denmark in a joint effort to make it easier for international employees and their families to settle and live in Aarhus and Denmark.
International Community was until March 2012 part of a regional initiative by Vækstforum, the Central Denmark Region growth forum, to welcome and retain international labour.
From March 2012 to June 2015 International Community was the lead partner and coordinator of the project, ‘Modtagelse og fastholdelse af udenlandsk arbejdskraft II" (Receiving and retaining international employees).
From 2013 to June 2018 International Community lead the national project 'Talent Attraction Denmark' in Central Denmark Region. The project aimed to promote Denmark and Central Denmark Region as an attractive place to work and stay for talented international employees. The project was a cooperation between Work Live Stay, Copenhagen Capacity and the municipalities of Aarhus and Copenhagen.

International Community also works in close cooperation with a number of network projects and organisations, which focus on welcoming and retaining international expats. These network projects and organisations are among others:
