Capital Denmark Growth Forum
Kongens Vænge 2
The Growth Forum's vision is by 2015 to make the Capital Region the most attractive metropolis in the Northern Europe to live, study, work, do business and visit. The Growth Forum brings together the region's key players from industry, research and education, labor, municipal and regional councils.
The Growth Forum examines the region's strengths and offers suggestions on how to expand them. It also works to develop business strategies for the region and to monitor and analyse conditions for growth in the area. The Growth Forum facilitates regional projects on innovation, knowledge building, technology, new business and tourism - including financial support. Besides that it assigns the EU Structural Funds for development activities that enhance innovation, new businesses, business clusters, capacity building, tourism and encourage the use of new technology. The Capital Growth Forum is one of six regional forums in Denmark. Altogether 20 members of the Capital Growth Forum meet six times a year, whereas the Capital Region acts as the secretariat for the Growth Forum.
The Growth Forum has supported a large number of projects over the years. Recent projects include support for development of renewable energy such as demonstration of technologies for sustainable energy production from biomass.
