South Jutland (Denmark)
Sønderjylland county (Danish: Sønderjyllands Amt) solves the public tasks of the region in a close co-operation with the 23 local authorities and the state. About 5 % of the population of Denmark lives in this region, i.e. 254.000 inhabitants, the county's area is 3.929 square kilometres.
Key-partner for Sønderjylland County is Sønderjyllands TIC & ErhvervsCenter, (South Jutland Regional Business Development Centre, STEC), which was established in 1949. In 2001 the present structure was established as a result of merging a department of a national organisation (TIC Danmark) into the existing regional organisation. The activities have thereby been expanded by further consultancy to SMEs. Sønderjyllands TIC & Erhvervscenter is the general business development and promotion organisation for the county of Sønderjylland. The objective is to develop organisations, insti-tutions and enterprises in order to make efficient use of the competences and opportunities in the region. This is achieved through providing consultancy services (i.e. technology consultancy, financial consultancy, market analysis …), initiate networks and projects on national and international level, for development, education, technology transfer and globalisation.
Sønderjyllands Erhvervcenter was closed January 01, 2007, because of the Danish administrative reform.
