Danish Cleantech Hub launching new Water Tech Think Tank in New York

Indhold fra partner Hvad er dette?

Danish Cleantech Hub is one of the founders of the new public-private water tech think tank, NY Blue Tech that will focus on Integrated Water Management, Waste Water, Blue-Green Infrastructure and Climate Adaptation.

Danish Cleantech Hub, a joint initiative by Confederation of Danish Industry and State of Green in New York, is one of the founders of the new public-private water tech think tank, NY Blue Tech. The think tank is being launched Friday May 5th in connection with New York City’s Smart City Expo, which is expected to draw in 3,000 participants.

NY Blue Tech has been in the making for a couple of years based on a local demand in NYC from public and private stakeholders. They want a higher degree of integration of New York’s water sector, historically characterized by silos in terms of knowledge and technology sharing.

That is the basis of Danish Cleantech Hub’s decision to join hands with other progressive stakeholders to establish a formalized forum to discuss challenges that New York is facing regarding water management. Apart from local stakeholders such as Arcadis, Columbia University, Pratt Institute and Water Environment & Reuse Foundation Danish, Danish water specialists such as Grundfos, Ramboll, DHI and Rockwool, are involved in the think tank.    

NY Blue Tech will focus on Integrated Water Management, Waste Water, Blue-Green Infrastructure and Climate Adaptation.

Danish Cleantech Hub thrilled about the new water think tank

Danish Cleantech Hub sees NY Blue Tech as an innovative way of introducing Danish water technology and knowhow to especially the public market in New York, and thereby  create an exclusive market access for our members”, says Klaus Lehn Christensen, Project Director, Danish Cleantech Hub

The launch of NY Blue Tech will offer an introduction to the founders, the mission of the think tank, as well as case examples of unique public-private water-related projects in New York, including the Cloudburst and Climate Adaptation collaboration between Copenhagen and New York, through which Ramboll since the fall of 2016 has contracted with New York City on developing a Cloudburst Plan.
