GIN EVENT 2012
We were delighted to participate in the GIN 2012 Conference “Support your future today! Turning environmental challenges into business opportunities”.
Our conference was held from October 22-24 in Linköpig, Sweden. The East Swedish region is well known for its “Triple Helix”, (i.e. strong cooperation links between industry, government and knowledge institutes), innovative SMEs, Clean Technology and bio-fuel production synergies.
Furthermore, East Sweden, like Sweden overall, scores very high in R&D investments, the number of patents per capita and the application of renewable Energy. Therefore, there were plenty of opportunities for knowledge exchange and inspirational ambiance during the GIN 2012 conference and stay in Linköpig. Conference website
