This study of Central & Southern Denmark takes part in the contexts of many national and international agendas. The EU has developed its Europe 2020 strategy, including the Innovation Union Initiative. The EU is also preparing for the next programming period for EU Structural Funds, calling on regions to develop “smart specialisation strategies” as a prerequisite for spending funds.

A new national Innovation Strategy for Denmark is being created. It will take into consideration the contribution of regions to national goals and their role. In this report, the strategies of Central and Southern Denmark are therefore assessed given the types of innovation system potential, the regions’ institutional position, and the nature of their strategic choices in this political context.

The Key Facts

  • Although Denmark is a country that scores highly on quality of life and wealth indicators, its productivity growth has slowed, reducing its competitive advantage over other OECD nations (in 2010, it was -11% compared to the average of 17 OECD economies). Like other non-capital Danish, Central and Southern Denmark are also affected.
