On 15th of May a very successful MidNet event was carried out at Innovation Centre Denmark in Shanghai. More than 40 participants from various Danish and Chinese companies and knowledge institutions joined the event that focused on the MidNet projects – challenges and success stories in the three year program.
The Project Manager at the Danish Technological Institute and the operator of MidNet event, Karen Sondergaard, noted that there has been a great interest in participating.
“This is about knowledge – to generate knowledge, share knowledge and think in a long term. It is hard work which requires a lot from the participants who comes from two completely different cultures. It is necessary to give a push with initiatives like MidtNet and the result is unique opportunities,” said Karen Sondergaard.
