On 20-22 May 2014, Janusz Kahl, managing director in South Poland Cleantech Cluster participated in the ICN Summit 2014 hosted by Copenhagen Cleantech Cluster (now CLEAN) in Copenhagen, Denmark. This was the ninth biannual summit of the International Cleantech Network. Almost 500 participants from 40 countries joined in on the three-day function which included B2B-matchmaking, insights into Danish business opportunities, a conference with workshops on city challenges as well as five seminars on the transverse topics guiding the summit.


City Challenges

During the conference, cities were given the opportunity to pitch a specific challenge in the relevant thematic tracks in order to attract the participants from each field of expertise, hereby ensuring a strong mix of competencies for each challenge.
Working with the challenges posed by the cities, it soon became evident to city representatives and participants alike that the dialogue and process of co-creation with potential partners could lead to economically interesting solutions and new business opportunities.
Participants were able to draw on their vast experience within each of the six transverse themes to produce a range of recommendations for the cities’ continued work on the challenges.

The participating cities were:

• Barcelona, Spain
• Boulder, Fort Collins and Loveland, USA
• Copenhagen, Denmark
• Graz, Austria
• Grenoble, France
• Milan, Italy
• Osaka, Japan
• Perth, Australia
• Rotterdam, Holland
