All interested parties are now invited to contribute to the application, give input on project ideas, and establish partnerships.
The ambition of the Mission-driven green research and innovation partnerships are to fulfil the ambitious goals Denmark is committed to act on and reduce climate changes and has set goals to a 70% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) in Denmark by 2030 and net-zero emissions by 2050, strengthen environment and nature, and furthermore, to contribute to increased competitiveness of Danish businesses and industries.
The work on establishing the partnership and related projects builds upon the AgriFoodTure-roadmap submitted to the Innovation Fund Denmark in May 2021.
The partnership application deadline is October 19th, 2021, and we acknowledge that the process is fast and calls upon all our efforts and willingness to make this happen.
