New Cohesion Policy - Denmark
"Even in more developed countries like Denmark Structural Fund financing makes a difference. The ESI funds contribute to stronger growth in all Danish regions, helping to reach the objectives of a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. Thousands of jobs have been created, and the turnovers of participating companies have grown by billions of Euro, compared to similar companies that have not taken part in projects."
"For already 27 years, Interreg has been bringing EU citizens together across borders, for example by helping build bi-lingual childcare facilities, or cross-border train lines or hospitals. I look forward to the coming debate on 2 July at the European Environment Agency in Copenhagen, on how Interreg VI can further support Denmark's efforts in cooperating with its neighbours for better living standards in cross-border regions". Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Creţu
GeoCentre Møns Klint for Natural Wonders
One of the Denmark’s most stunning natural wonders, the white chalk Mons Klint used to be neighboured by rundown buildings. Today, with the support of EU cohesion policy, it houses the GeoCenter Møns Klint geological and nature museum.
This interactive exhibition traces the geological history of Denmark dating back about 70 million years. The cave-like exhibition spaces allow space for contemporary artists as well. The museum building itself is unique as most of it is underground, out of respect for nature and also because the centre tells the story of Denmark’s geological roots.
The centre has become a popular tourist attraction. Of the 250 000 annual visitors to the cliffs, 75 000 enjoy the interactive exhibitions in the exceptional centre as well. It has become a top site in its own right.
