By Khurram Jamil, Co-founder & President of strategic initiatives, Area9 Lyceum

With the availability of AI-powered Adaptive Learning, we can now rethink how we want to develop our organization. For the first time, we can use technology to upskill an entire group of people and have everyone receive the personal attention they need. The need for this technology has been further accelerated by the effects of COVID-19, especially in relation to China, where travel restrictions and closed borders have caused barriers relating to knowledge transfer across borders.

In this webinar, Khurram Jamil, Co-founder & President of Strategic Initiatives at Area9 Lyceum will introduce the concept of adaptive learning for workforces and explore how this technology for example can be used to ensure that workers build adequate product knowledge. Furthermore, Khurram will go through case examples of companies where the technology is applied, such as Audi and Lockheed Martin. Starting last year, companies with teams in China can use Area9’s technology thanks to local cloud hosting and support.

Join the webinar to explore how the technology will help ensure your learning organization is ready for the next decades.

Danish-Chinese Business Forum (DCBF) is a member of EU-China Business Association (EUCBA) and we are pleased to invite you to this partner webinar:

The EU-China Business Association, the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China, and BusinessEurope are delighted to invite you to the 'European Business in China: Position Paper 2022/2023' launch.

This Position Paper of the European Union Chamber of Commerce in China is the culmination of nine months of dedicated work by 41 working groups and sub-working groups and forums. This year’s Executive Position paper outlines, how over the last year, there has been a significant shift in focus at European companies' headquarters (HQs) when evaluating China.

By prioritizing ideology over economic concerns, China's business environment is becoming less predictable, reliable and efficient. While opportunities for European companies remain, they must now develop strategies to deal with an ever-growing list of risks stemming from both emerging legislation—within and outside of China—and geopolitical developments. Join us to understand the key drivers behind these trends and their implications for European business.

Agriculture & Fisheries

Sino-Danish Government-to- Government Cooperation within Food, Agriculture & Fisheries, Environment & Water and Sustainable Urban Development

Date: May 11, 2021

Time: 09:00

Event: Webinar


The area of food, agriculture & fisheries has traditionally been highly regulated and governed by government policies and trade barriers. In order to promote the cooperation in these areas between China and Denmark and overcome the barriers many protocols and agreements have been signed between China and Denmark. To this comes the continuous seeking of common areas where China and Denmark can cooperate in order to create the basis for the introduction of Danish solutions for a more sustainable, safe and efficient food production. To enhance this cooperation the SSC-project on Food and Agriculture was introduced 5 years ago and is now in its second phase. It has two tracks: One on improving food safety and another on resource efficiency and food loss and waste.

Within the policy areas of environment, water and sustainable urban development the goal of the Sino-Danish government cooperation has been to create Chinese interest for the Danish solutions and also to contribute to the green development of the environment in China. The areas are also governed by cooperation agreements between the Danish Ministry of Environment and the Chinese Ministry for Environment (MEE) and Ministry of Water Resources (MWR). The Sector cooperation on environment has focus on water resource management and wastewater management working particularly with the provincial level in Hebei, Fujian, Beijing and Jiangsu. The sector cooperation on Sustainable Urban Development is carried out between Beijing and Copenhagen and focuses on circular construction, climate change adaptation, waste water management, and energy efficiency in existing buildings.

Participants will be introduced to the government cooperation with the two areas, the various programme activities and hear how the business community can play a role and benefit from the cooperation.
