Vitus Bering Innovation Park opened in 2009.
Vitus Bering Innovation Park is named after Vitus Jonassen Bering (1681 – 1741) who was born in Horsens. He became one of the greatest explorers of his time and is Horsens’ most famous townsman.
On one of his expeditions under Russian flag Bering discovered that Asia and America are two separate continents and not connected by land. As a tribute to Vitus Bering the Bering Strait and the Bering Sea were named after him. For that reason it was considered an obvious choice to name this innovation park after him – which also promotes our international profile.
