This past Wednesday and Thursday (11-12.11.2020), NGE had the pleasure of attending the China Jiangsu CITTC, Conference for International Technology Transfer and Commercialization. The first day was dedicated to the Plenary Session, with an emphasis on international partnerships in developing and expanding both research into and use of technology. We were very happy to see a specific track for Norway, in addition to those for Austria, Israel, Finland, Slovakia, Korea, Australia, and Russia, particularly as many larger nations did not, indicating the interest and confidence in Norwegian technology and expertise. On the second day, Norway held its own Technology Roadshow event, with presentations from many interesting and fascinating companies in the green and blue technology spheres, particularly with a focus on organic waste recycling and water purification activities. Overall, a very productive and engaging conference that will hopefully lead to further opportunities for Norwegian green and blue tech companies to enter the Chinese market.
NGE was pleased to see a continued engagement with Norwegian technology and expertise in the green and blue space from China, and particularly in Jiangsu, the second biggest provincial economy in China. Jiangsu is, and will likely continue to be the favored province for Norwegian companies entering the Chinese market, as it is located next to Shanghai. The Jiangsu provincial government currently has an MOU with Innovation Norway focusing on promotion of green tech, R&D, and commercialization. We are encouraged by these initiatives, and believe that even more opportunities will arise for our partners and clients in this space in the future. We look forward to potentially collaborating with the participating and other companies and organizations in the future, particularly as we seek to grow our Norway-China Blue Network.
