Together for economic growth and development

Greater Copenhagen is a collaborative organisation promoting growth and development in the largest Nordic metropolitan area, encompassing 4.3 million citizens in Southern Sweden and Eastern Denmark.

Through a network of alliances, pilot projects and interest representation, we are laying the groundwork for the growth and welfare of the future. It is Greater Copenhagen’s ambition that our Danish-Swedish region will evolve into one of the world’s strongest and most attractive metropolitan regions for growth, innovation and sustainability.

We are working to fulfil this ambition through various partnerships, which are the key to fostering development and innovation in Greater Copenhagen’s 85 municipalities and 4 regions. We are hard at work building alliances with universities, businesses and public authorities, at both regional and international levels.

Greater Copenhagen has focused its efforts on five key areas which are essential to future growth and development.
