The vision of AquaGlobe is to create a development and knowledge transfer centre, which will form the physical setting for a value-creating network between the business community, universities, Danish administrative regions, municipalities and water companies using tests, demonstrations and a showroom, and which is also a recreational and inspiring area for citizens, institutions and tourists.

By focusing on transferring an understanding of the water cycle, climate proofing, the countryside in the area and water as a resource, visitors will gain a better understanding of the climate in the future.
