Schleswig-Holstein and Denmark also have a big potential for innovative activities, building upon the previous success in the energy transition, especially on intelligent energy systems, energy efficiency and storage. While small and medium sized enterprises (sme) in the programme region are facing challenges in order to stay competitive, FURGY CLEAN Innovation will increase the ability of smes to adapt to market changes through innovation. Companies can profit from experience sharing and technology transfers, develop partnership to be bigger and innovate together.
