Finnish Business Council Singapore: Nordic Ambassadors' Luncheon

Dear Members and Friends,

Wrapping up a year of fruitful collaborations, the Nordic Chambers and Business Associations are delighted to invite you to the Nordic Ambassadors' Luncheon with Singapore’s NEA Director as the guest of honour. 

The theme for the event on December 10, is Sustainable Development – for which joint efforts, innovation and exchange are crucial.

The Nordic countries have all committed to the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the 2030 Agenda and are pursuing the goals at an international level as well as working towards building sustainable societies at home. Singapore is equally very ambitious, being both a Green and a Smart Nation. 
 
The luncheon will showcase that Singapore and the Nordics share both similarities and common interests.

After a three-course sustainable lunch is served, the four Nordic corporations will share successful sustainable business cases that put the SDG’s into practice.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Tilaisuuden järjestävät yhteistyössä Enterprise Europe Network, Helsingin seudun kauppa­ka­­­ma­­ri, Suomalais-Latinalaisamerikkalainen kauppayhdistys, Suomen Yrittäjät, Suomi-Espan­ja seura ry ja Team Finland. Tilaisuus on osallistujille maksuton, mutta ilmoittautu­mi­nen on välttämätöntä.

Caros Membros,

A pedido do Exmo. Senhor Presidente da Câmara Municipal de Aveiro, junto um convite para um forum que espero seja do vosso melhor interesse.

 Melhores cumprimentos,

Alexandra

O TECHDAYS é um evento que reforça a imagem de Portugal nas áreas da TECNOLOGIA e I&D e as projeta a uma escala regional, nacional e internacional, assumindo-se por isso, como uma plataforma que garante a criação de interfaces entre o mundo académico (universidades e institutos de I&D) e o mundo empresarial (associações, clusters e empresas), e onde a Inovação Tecnológica é o elemento agregador dos diferentes setores da economia nacional.

Atendendo ao sucesso alcançado nas últimas 3 edições e aos temas em que estamos a trabalhar para o evento deste ano, nomeadamente: Industria 4.0, Economia Circular, Mobilidade, Talentos & Competências e Cidades Inteligentes, entendemos que seria muito relevante a v/ participação, à qual poderão juntar o convite a alguns dos v/ associados, pelo que junto vos envio o DOSSIER COMERCIAL do TECHDAYS 2018.

Aproveitamos para  informar que já temos confirmada a presença dos seguintes CITs: IT / INESC-TEC / CTIC / UNINOVA / ITECONS / ISQ / CTCV.

Está ainda confirmada a presença de diversas entidades de relevante interesse, tais como: Altice Labs, Bosch, Veolia, ERSUC, Siemens, Fraunhofer Portugal, EDP Distribuição, Wavecom, AIRC, NEC, OLI, entre outras.

Deixamos também informação sobre a edição de 2017: vídeo e vos convidamos a visitarem o renovado site do evento, onde poderá obter mais informações e a apresentação dos primeiros oradores.: www.techdays.pt .

 Teríamos, com compreenderá, muito gosto de contar igualmente com a vossa presença.
