Denmark is boosting public research funding, fostering greater public-private research collaboration and establishing a number of strategic innovation centers in some of the world's leading technology hotspots as the tiny Nordic country scrambles to keep its economy buoyant and competitive. Danish policy-makers agreed in 2006 to a comprehensive strategy aimed at increasing the country's competitiveness. The strategy -- "Progress, Innovation and Cohesion" -- calls for significant hikes in spending on R&D, tighter collaboration between public research institutes and universities, and greater overall cooperation between public and private research teams. The Innovation Center Denmark in Silicon Valley, launched in 2006, is the first of a handful of technology liaison offices intended to extend the efforts of the Danish government to establish contacts and partnerships with foreign scientists beyond its network of embassies and consulates. On the research and technology side, a top priority is to build partnerships and, ideally, joint research projects between universities in Silicon Valley and Denmark, with researchers spending time in each other's labs.
