Smart moves boost Danish business

It also profiles all the finalists, and reveal the winners, of the annual Regiostars awards for the most innovative EU-funded projects.
The main focus is on Denmark, which launched a new Danish Executive Board for Business Development and Growth to handle cohesion funds. The Board's Vice-Director explains what the changes mean. A number of successful Danish projects are also profiled.
The issue also features a report from the 8th Evaluation conference and another on the key results from the EU Solidarity Fund's work over the past 15 years. There is an update on negotiations for the EU budget for the period 2021-2027, and also a report on how Portugal conducted assessment and adjustment of its smart specialisation strategy.
