The Scandinavian countries, especially Denmark, have been the backbone and inspiration for SPCleantech’s activities for years. On August 10, 2020, HE Ambassador of the Kingdom of Denmark, Ole Toft, together with a delegation, visited SPCleantech in Krakow. The Ambassador expressed his will to cooperate with the cluster and to participate, together with Danish institutions and companies, in projects organized by SPCleantech in cooperation with regional authorities, cities, as well as institutions and companies from Małopolska.
During his stay in Krakow, the Ambassador and CEO at SPCleantech, Janusz Kahl, participated in meetings with the state administration represented by the vice-voivode, Zbigniew Starzec, the local government administration, represented by the vice-marshal Tomasz Urynowicz, and with the authorities of the city of Krakow, represented by Mayor Jacek Majchrowski.
“In recent years, high-tech sectors related to biotechnology, climate, information technology and electronics have recorded an increase in Denmark. And thanks to its energy policy, Denmark is now completely self-sufficient in terms of energy supply, also focusing on the export of green technologies. The Danish wind industry is a world leader in this field. These are experiences worth drawing on. Cooperation incl. in terms of environmentally friendly technologies, reducing air pollution and sustainable transport, we all need it”
– says Deputy Marshal Tomasz Urynowicz.
All participants of the meetings expressed their will to cooperate with the Danish Embassy in projects related to climate, environmental protection, clean air, energy efficiency, renewable energy sources, SmartCity, Smart buildings, and thus topics on which Denmark has a lot to offer. All participants also agreed that an animator and coordinator of these activities will be needed and that the best partner is South Poland Cleantech Cluster.
In the near future, the CEO at SPCleantech will meet with the participants of the meetings to discuss specific projects with the participation of the Danish Embassy.
