A BENCHMARKING TRIP TO DENMARK

From November 7 to 10, 2017, around 20 FemCAT member companies and a delegation of journalists from various media outlets participated in the seventh edition of FemCAT’s benchmarking trip. This year, we went to Denmark to observe and learn about the country’s energy transition and renewable energies model, innovation and cooperation between the public and private sectors; and its welfare status, focusing on the pension system and flexicurity in its labour market.

Of the excursions we took, we would highlight the Danish sustainability and renewable energies strategy, which greatly limits the extent to which the country must depend on external resources. The close collaboration between public and private entities in different key sectors of the economy is another takeaway since it favours Denmark’s competitiveness beyond its borders (attracting talent, the agri-food sector, pharmaceuticals, etc.). In this regard, we must also emphasize the close collaboration between the worlds of business, universities and research, which helps promote a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship.
