Central Denmark EU Office
A Danish regional office in Brussels
Central Denmark EU Office – the Central Danish gateway to the EU
At Central Denmark EU Office, we work hard to make sure that the Central Denmark Region along with
its 19 municipalities, Aarhus University and VIA University College play an active part in the EU, thus
maximizing the outcome of the many opportunities that the EU-cooperation presents.
We have brought home close to 100 million euros in funding
We facilitate collaboration between Central Danish institutions and their counterparts abroad in order to
boost innovation and cooperation across borders. Furthermore, since 2007, we have helped to bring home close to 100 million euros in EU-funding to directly benefit enterprises, organizations and higher learning institutions in the Central Denmark Region. But funding is just one side of the successful story.
Networking is key
From our office in the heart of Brussels, we continue to expand and deepen our network within the EU,
thereby staying updated on the newest developments regarding e.g. EU-funding and structural changes
that might influence a given area of policy. In this way, we can help all of our collaborators in Central Denmark gain that all-important early knowledge that is often essential when wanting to seek funding or find the right European partners.
We help companies and institutions to make their voice heard
We also help Central Danish companies and institutions to make their voice heard in the EU, thereby hopefully inspiring others.
In the spring of 2022, two of the female founders behind the Central Danish start-up CAPSULE were invited to Brussels to speak about being a female entrepreneur in tech at a European conference on entrepreneurship and skills,
