In 2014-2020, Denmark will manage two operational programmes under EU Cohesion Policy. Of these, one will receive funding from European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and one from European Social Fund (ESF).

How much EU funding will be invested in Denmark (2014-2020)?

For 2014-2020, Denmark has been allocated around € 553 million (current prices) in total Cohesion Policy funding:

  • € 84 million for transition regions (Zealand).
  • € 329 million for more developed regions (Northern Jutland, Mid-Jutland, Southern Denmark, Capital region and Bornholm).
  • € 140 million for European Territorial Cooperation.

Of this, the ESF in Denmark will represent a minimum of € 206.6 million. The actual share will be set in light of the specific challenges the country needs to address in the areas covered by the ESF.
