    Innovation Norway (IN), the Norwegian Embassy in Seoul and the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Oslo would like to invite innovative Norwegian research institutes, clusters, companies and universities providing smart city and green technologies and solutions such as a smart ship, weather, and hydrogen mobility to join the 2020 Korea-Norway Smart City Network Webinar scheduled for Tuesday, 1 December from 8:00-10:00(CET) via Zoom.

    This is the 4th Smart Cities Seminar between the Republic of Korea and Norway since 2018. It will be co-hosted by IN, the Embassy of Norway in Korea, and the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Norway, and the Korean Press Foundation to discuss possible cooperation projects to contribute to smart sustainable cities and oceans in the Republic of Korea and Norway. The two countries are aiming to strengthen the cooperation not only in smart sustainable cities but also in oceans, including smart ships, weathers, and hydrogen. This seminar aims to bring about a constructive discussion, bridging the topics above to seek greater cooperation in both smart city technologies and mobility. This year, the seminar will take place as a webinar due to the COVID-19 situation.
