Despite the circumstances we are going through today there has been progress in ASIA-CLEAN project and future steps will be taken promptly.

Entering the Malaysian market

We travelled from February 7 to February 17 in Kuala Lumpur. A total of 17 different meetings took place during the week and we established very good contacts at government and private level.

We have good contacts in the following organizations: Salcon Petroleum, Embassy of Finland, Business Finland, Invest Selangor, Invest KL, MIDA’s Green Technology Division, MATRADE and others. In the future, we will be introduced to ports, state-run smart city areas, energy companies and more.

The next visit to Malaysia is scheduled for October 5-9 when there will be 2 major conferences in KL,  SCA20 and IGEM.

We have compiled some free online resources related to the themes of the ASIA-CLEAN project. These are MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) by several service providers. Typically accessing the materials and studying is free (signing in and enrolling is needed) but there is a cost for an official certificate.
