Denmark has been awarded four green mission-driven research and innovation partnerships, which will make us a green leading country.

The four green partnerships bring together the country's top researchers, companies and organizations to bring Denmark to the forefront in the field of storage and use of CO2, Power-to-X, climate- and environment-friendly agriculture and food production, as well as a circular economy with a focus on plastics and textiles.

Four areas that the parliamentary parties have designated based on Danish positions of strength.



The four mission-driven partnerships
Mission 1: INNO-CCUS - Collection and storage or use of CO2
Open section, Mission 1: INNO-CCUS - Collection and storage or use of CO2

The INNO-CCUS partnership must ensure efficient capture and storage of CO2, and not least the development of methods to reuse CO2 as a building block for new materials.

Mission 3: AgriFoodTure - Climate and environmentally friendly agriculture and food production
Open section, Mission 3: AgriFoodTure - Climate and environmentally friendly agriculture and food production

AgriFoodTure will make Denmark a world leader in innovative and disruptive green restructuring of agricultural and food production. This must be done by developing new and ground-breaking solutions and technologies, which, in addition to contributing to achieving Denmark's climate goals, must also be disseminated globally. The ambition is therefore that the green transformation of Danish agriculture should create new export opportunities and more jobs nationally while maintaining strong food production in Denmark.

Mission 4: CE-PT- Circular economy with a focus on plastics and textiles
Open section, Mission 4: CE-PT- Circular economy with a focus on plastics and textiles

The CE-PT partnership must ensure a circular economy for plastics and textiles in Denmark towards 2050. Based on a holistic view of resource consumption, the partnership must ensure long durability and better recycling of plastics and textiles, which has great environmental and climate potential.

Background and process
Open section, Background and process

Green research and innovation partnerships


In the agreement on the research reserve 2021 , the government together with the other parties in the Folketing set aside a total of DKK 700,000,000 for the establishment of green research and innovation partnerships that fulfill the specific missions.


The aim of the partnerships is to contribute to:

  1. to achieve the goal of a 70% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in Denmark by 2030 and net-zero emissions in 2050 and to strengthen the environment and nature.
  2. increased competitiveness for Danish business and industry.

The investments in mission-driven partnerships will accelerate the development of ground-breaking green solutions through strategic and coherent green research, spanning all the way from strategic research to commercialization.

The success of the green transition is strongly dependent on a systemic development of technologies and solutions in close cooperation and coordination between relevant actors in the entire value chain with a long-term focus.

To achieve the ambitious goal, the missions must:

  • be based on a comprehensive assessment of the innovative solutions necessary to achieve a transformative effect in one of the defined mission areas.
  • outline a group of synergistic, sequential innovation projects/efforts (the mission roadmap) to achieve a clearly defined transformative impact.
  • indicate how the Danish effort fits into/relates to/makes use of relevant efforts at European and global level, based on current or potential Danish strengths.
  • and executed by one or more self-established agile partnerships per mission area that includes a diverse set of stakeholders, are multidisciplinary and may include international partners.

Two-phase posting process

The selection of green research and innovation partnerships is the result of a two-phase call-up process:

Phase 1: Development and decision on mission roadmaps
All relevant actors in the Danish research and innovation system are encouraged to develop a socio-technical back-track roadmap from 2050, which describes challenges and shortcomings within the mission, positions of strength and potential and outlines key activities and relevant work stream themes for future partnerships.

An international panel of experts helps the Innovation Foundation's board to select one or more roadmaps under each mission to form the backbone of the activities in future mission-driven partnerships.

Publication: Roadmaps for mission-driven green research and innovation partnerships (Innomission-roadmaps)

Published: March 17, 2021

Phase 2: Call for partnerships
The call for partnerships will be announced after the selection of timetables. The selection of partnerships will be based on a thorough evaluation and selection process, including international peer reviewers, on the actions within the framework of the selected roadmaps. There can be one or more partnerships within each mission. The upcoming green research and innovation partnerships, which will be selected in December, will be of decisive importance for the green transition in Denmark, the goals for emission reduction, and the partnerships must contribute to increasing the competitiveness and growth opportunities of Danish companies.
