The Chamber of Commerce of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, in collaboration with the Luxembourg Embassy in Copenhagen, will organise a multi-sectoral economic mission to Denmark from the 24th to the 26th of November 2015. The trade mission aims at strengthening bilateral economic ties between Luxembourg and Denmark in the fields of logistics, maritime business, eco-technologies and ICT. Sectoral programmes in the before-mentioned areas are being organised in collaboration with the respective Clusters in Luxembourg and offer the possibility to present Luxembourg’s know-how and technologies, but also to stimulate an exchange and knowledge-sharing with the Danish counterparts.
Denmark, with its highly sophisticated economy and thriving industries in the fields of clean technologies, ICT, maritime and shipping, has succeeded in positioning itself as a world leading laboratory for green technologies. The country holds a long tradition for building smart cities, where the concern for the environment, people and businesses go hand in hand. The two largest cities in Denmark, the City of Copenhagen and the City of Aarhus have both set ambitious goals to become CO2 neutral by 2025 and 2030, respectively. In order to achieve this, the cities are determined to implement new and innovative solutions within construction, water, heating, transportation, waste management and alternative energy sources. Copenhagen was already awarded the prestigious European Green Capital Award in 2014 for its achievements. Moreover, the Danish government has set the ambitious goal of having the national energy supply entirely powered by renewable sources by 2050. It is especially within the offshore industry within wind power and wave energy, that Denmark is positioned at the forefront of technological development. With its sustainable development efforts and innovative solutions and technologies, Denmark holds great potential for collaboration in the fields of circular economy, smart cities, e-governance, green logistics and environmentally-friendly technologies for the maritime industry.
During the economic mission, participating companies from Luxembourg may take part in sectoral workshops organised with the Confederation of Danish Industry, where they will have the opportunity to present their innovative solutions and technologies and exchange with local companies and institutions. A networking reception and various opportunities to meet key players will be provided. In addition, 4 separate programmes of site visits will be set up for the participating companies on the second day of the economic mission. A visit to the Science Park Ideon in Lund (Southern Sweden) is also envisaged.
