Environment & Maritime Focus
This is a very long distance technology partnership but their mutual interest and expertise in the environment, technology and the ocean closes the mileage gap. Norway and the state of Washington have just signed a two year agreement to develop the next generation of maritime technologies and clean energy innovations. Their results will benefit both regions of the world.
Clean Energy Focus
The MOU was signed by Washington State officials and Innovation Norway. Norway's Ambassador to the US The Hon. Kare Aas was there. Their collaboration is focused on innovation in clean energy, particularly for maritime vessels, innovation for the oceans, electric vehicles, data analytics and to promote economic and trade relations. Additionally, they want to modernize and cut the environmental impact of the fishing and seafood industries through new technology and innovation.
