EU cohesion policy: Commission adopts €808 million Partnership Agreement with Denmark for 2021-2027

The Commission adopted its Partnership Agreement with Denmark, setting out Denmark’s €808 million cohesion policy investment strategy for the period 2021-2027. The funds will support Denmark in promoting economic, social and territorial cohesion, with a focus on key EU priorities such as the green and digital transition. The funds will also contribute to the country’s competitive, innovative and sustainable growth. The Partnership Agreement with Denmark paves the way for the investments from the cohesion policy funds on the ground, it establishes the eligibility and implementation of the Just Transition Fundin the regions with carbon-intensive industrial facilities most negatively impacted by the climate transition and it reflects Denmark’s strong commitment to the coordinated use of the cohesion policy funds with the Recovery and Resilience Facility. Each Member State prepares a Partnership Agreement in cooperation with the Commission. This is a strategic document for programming investments from the cohesion policy funds and the European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund (EMFAF) during the Multiannual Financial Framework. It also presents a list of national and regional programmes for implementation on the ground, as well as the indicative annual financial allocation for each programme. Denmark’s Partnership Agreement is the seventh one adopted for the 2021-2027 funding period, following those of Greece, Germany, Lithuania, Austria, Finland and Czechia. Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms, Elisa Ferreira, gave a keynote speech today at the launch event of the Denmark Cohesion Policy 2021-2027 Partnership Agreement in Odense, together with Danish minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs, Simon Kollerup. She will also visit several flagship innovation projects of Danish small and medium businesses supported by EU funds. More details in the press release.
