Denmark is in the top of countries in regards to eligible partnerships for P4G funding with 90 per cent of proposals meeting the criteria. Shortlisted applicants are notified by early May.
The 2019 global call for P4G-partnerships ended with 382 applications from partnerships working in 73 developing countries.
The well-established Danish national P4G platform has assisted Danish partnerships string together the best possible applications. As a result, 90 per cent of the Danish scale-up and start-up partnership proposals submitted are eligible for funding, whereas the average eligibility for all partnerships across countries is 65 per cent.
“Among the criteria for P4G funding for a partnership is that its solution has the potential both to become a good business and to be scaled or replicated. This way solutions that are not currently available can be implemented and make a significant difference. The Danish P4G supports the applications involving Danish stakeholders by giving feedback on proposals to ensure that they present the partnership the best way and live up to the P4G application criteria,” says Iver Høj Nielsen, Head of P4G activities in Denmark.
