Growth pilot

If you can see the possibilities and potential for development in small and medium-sized enterprises, the Growth Pilot Scheme is an ideal option in your search for a job.

The scheme provides small and medium-sized enterprises in rural areas with the opportunity to hire you for up to two years.

Your primary task will be to work on an innovation project in the company. For example, this could include the development of new products and production methods.

Help generate growth and development

As a growth pilot you will help generate growth and development in small and medium-sized companies. The company will be given a grant to fund your employment.

The Growth Pilot Scheme is new and part of Innovation Fund Denmark’s growth programme.  The specific rules and guidelines for the application procedure have not yet been published.
The Knowledge Pilot scheme no longer exists. But the Growth Pilot scheme is a similar project. Contact a career adviser for further information.

As soon as they are announced, you can read more about the Growth Pilot Scheme on the Innovation Fund Denmark website. There, you can also find out which municipalities are classified as rural areas.
