The South Denmark European Office

We connect southern danish businesses, public and private actors to the European Union, its funding programmes and international networks and partnerships.

The South Denmark European Office (SDEO) is a not-for-profit association and partnership between the Region of Southern Denmark and the region’s 22 municipalities.

Contact us to explore the possibilities in projects and collaborations with dynamic southern danish partners.

Our team of EU consultants provide expert guidance, assistance with project development and network opportunities that enable southern Danish and international partners to share know-how and develop international projects that deliver growth, learning and development.

Key areas of international opportunity 

The South Denmark European Office actively matches European and Danish partners in EU projects, and supports projects with management and co-ordination.

Our team works to build and strengthen the synergy between european and southern Danish strengths in fields including:

Health and welfare innovation
Energy, climate and the circular economy
Future skills and education

– and many more.

Here are a few examples of our recent projects.

European networks and partnerships

The South Denmark European Office is an active member of many pan-European networks, both independently and on behalf of public and private organisations and institutions.

We work to create local, regional and European partnerships and collaborative projects, and to build international awareness of southern Denmark’s skills, strengths and innovations.

SDEO is also a member of the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN), the world’s largest support network for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with international ambitions.
