The NIRAS ALECTIA Foundation

Niras Alectia Foundation

The NIRAS ALECTIA Foundation, which is the majority shareholder of The NIRAS Group A/S, works with a clear vision to ensure the stable and long-term development of NIRAS with ambitions for social, economic, and environmental sustainability.

The Foundation was established in 1976 and according to the Foundation Charter, NIRAS’ profits must be reinvested into the company, promote the educational development and progress of engineers and technicians, and strengthen recognition of Danish engineering companies globally.

With the support of the NIRAS ALECTIA Foundation, NIRAS’ employees are part of a larger purpose to contribute to the sustainable progress of society and support research and education within engineering and natural sciences.

The Foundation primarily focuses on supporting PhD programmes within NIRAS’ business areas in the countries where NIRAS is represented. By supporting innovative and sustainable PhD-projects, the valuable collaboration with universities and other research environments is promoted, while NIRAS’ services are able to progress alongside the newest research.

The NIRAS ALECTIA Foundation additionally supports several relevant and exciting projects, initiatives, and awards, which all encourage development and long-run innovation within NIRAS’ many professional fields.
