Reaching even further south, the university offers a number of joint programmes in co-operation with the University of Flensburg and the University of Kiel. Contacts with regional industries and the international scientific community are strong.
The University of Southern Denmark (Syddansk Universitet) was formed in 1998 (but dates back to 1966) by the merger between Odense University (founded in 1966), Southern Denmark School of Business and Engineering and South Jutland University Centre. In 2006 it was decided to incorporate the Business School Centre in Slagelse (Handelshøjskolecentret Slagelse), the National Institute of Public Health (Statens Institut for Folkesundhed) and Odense Teknikum into the University of Southern Denmark per January 1, 2007. The University therefore now has seven campuses, mainly located in the southern part of Denmark: campus Odense on the island of Funen with nearby engineering campus, campus Slagelse and campus Copenhagen on the island of Zealand, as well as campus Kolding, campus Esbjerg and campus Sønderborg (campus named Alsion) on the Jutland peninsula. In 1998 University Library of Southern Denmark was also merged with the university.
