The National Research Foundation of Korea, Embassy of Denmark in Korea and Innovation Centre Denmark Seoul are organizing the “Korea-Denmark Research and Innovation Day 2021” to explore and promote collaborations between the two countries. This event will be an opportunity to present current research and innovation trends and share the joint research interests.





lTHEMES


 1. Finding solutions to the climate change (hydrogen energy, renewable energy/power-to-X)

      Hydrogen is for many perceived as a potential zero-emission fuel for generations to come, with no harm to nature and the climate when produced or consumed. Since November 2018, Denmark and Korea have been collaborating on renewable energy development and a green transition. Hydrogen energy, energy storage, and Power 2 X are important topics for research cooperation between Denmark and Korea, which will make the partnership between the two countries stronger and more effective.


 2. Resource recovery (wastewater treatment, water resource recovery, etc.)

      Increasing demands on water due to the population growth and climate change underline the importance of recognising the value of wastewater. In many conventional wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), wastewater is simply treated and discharged as usual. However, there is a new perspective arising in circular view as which is considering wastewater as a new source of resources while minimise the discharge. Organic matters in the wastewater contains minerals such as phosphorous, nitrogen and even metals which can reutilised for various purposes. Moreover, the organic matters can be used as a fuel for generating renewable energy.
