Finding the solutions to today’s climate challenges is a race, and with the new European Green Deal as well as the Greater Copenhagen Green Charter the political backing is there to create change.
If we are to achieve our ambitions, we need to act.
The European Commission has stated that they expect to spend 35% of the Horizon Europe funding on Green Deal related projects from 2021 to 2027. That is more than 30 billion euros, available for application.
In the Greater Copenhagen Green Deal project, we wish to create partnerships between the public and private sector as well as research institutions. With the help of these partnerships, our aim is to identify 8 definite challenges or innovation opportunities within the green transition.
The webinar presents four innovation forums that you can become an active part of:
• Carbon neutral
• Energy efficiency
• Circular economy
• Climate resilience
If you want to know more about the Greater Copenhagen Green Deal project, how to apply for funding from the European Union, or wish to contribute to the Green Transition, this webinar is for you.

The project is a two-year effort that will contribute to developing innovative solutions for green conversion through a collaboration between companies, knowledge institutions and authorities in Greater Copenhagen. These strategic partnerships will find innovative solutions to the green transition through concrete development projects. In parallel, the project will attract foreign companies and talents to complement and support the need for the best competencies for the green transition. The project's budget is approximately 1,2M euro and will run for the next 2 years.
Behind the project is a strong Danish- Swedish partnership and from the Danish side it consists of: Copenhagen Capacity, as the project manager; two of the new Danish clusters, Energy Cluster Denmark and CLEAN, as well as Greater Copenhagen, and Greater Copenhagen EU Office. The Swedish side consists of: Invest in Skåne; Sustainable Business Hub Malmö; and the Skåne region and the Halland region.
