CALL Copenhagen was a regional development project initiated and funded by the Capital Region of Denmark, owned by Greater Copenhagen Utility (HOFOR) and managed in collaboration with the City of Copenhagen, the Confederation of Danish Industry (DI), the Danish Water and Waste Water Association (DANVA) and the utility company Novafos from 2016-2021.
One of the main objectives of the project was to develop a viable model for a water oriented living lab to support a faster development and upscaling of sustainable climate adaptation solutions – and to test different types of cross-cutting and collaborative innovation actions in the process.
CALL Copenhagen ended in 2021 as planned. However, the effort continues in The Danish Climate Adaptation Network (DNNK), which is an important part of the project outcome.
DNNK continue working for a climate adapted Denmark and green growth by creating, gathering and sharing knowledge and solutions.
DNNK consolidates different networks and initiatives with a focus on the water cycle and climate adaptation. In addition to CALL Copenhagen, it initially included the networks KLIKOVAND (focus on the development of municipal climate adaptation plans), Water in Urban Areas (triple helix innovation network) and INUNDO (think tank for coastal protection).
