Through the International Cleantech Network (ICN), one of the Copenhagen Cleantech Clusters stakeholders Inno-MT (Innovation Network for Environmental Technology) has just returned back from a fruitful study trip to Graz in Austria. Inno-MT was successfull in bringing 14 delegators on a 3-day study trip to one of Europe´s leading regions for waste sorting and biomass technology, Steiermark, Graz, which is also known as the ´Green Tech Valley´ in Europe. The Danish delegation had great opportunities to get deep insights to Austrian technologies and Inno-MT partners were matched with biomass and waste companies from the ICN member ECO WORLD STYRIA.

ICN: great platform to get in touch with world leading cleantech companies

This study trip was part of the INNOVATION EXPRESS project, which aims to helping Danish companies to identify potential partners and explore more joint project opportunities in Austria. The Danish delegation was a mix of Danish authorities, research institutions, companies and cleantech clusters. ECO WORLD STYRIA utilized its network to facilitate meetings, company visiting programs and arranged B2B matchmaking section during the trip.

Rosa Kliggard Andersen, the secretary chef of Inno-MT is very positiveabout the outcome of the visit and impressed by the opportunities through ICN. ´The reason for choosing to visit Steiermark was for its advanced technology industry. Moreover, the solid fundamental relationships between Copenhagen Cleantech Cluster and Eco World Styria through ICN is also one of the reasons´, says Andersen.

Inno-MT has also been to visit the ICN member in Singapore around water technology and is going to South Korea in April to visit the coming ICN member there to understand the opportunities within waste, water and green building sectors.
