About the SDG Landing Pad-program 

We’re joining forces to address some of the most pressing global challenges and accelerate progress towards solving the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs). We have formed a unique constellation with The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Ministry of Higher Education and Science, The Danish Industry Foundation, Innovation Centre Denmark, the Danish clusters; Danish Life Science Cluster, CLEAN, DigitalLead and the SDG agency Rethink to pull together to position Danish companies and sustainable innovation as solutions to global challenges.

The SDG Landing Pad-program will run as a pilot until June 2023. We’re testing methods and ways of working to ensure that Danish innovation and companies have the best conditions when tapping in to solve global challenges. We have one primary focus for the pilot and that is to create value for the participating companies – they will be the frontrunners when solving global challenges, and therefore we are willing to walk the extra mile to help them succeed!
