„At the Green Economy Network.NRW, we showcase the transformative innovative power of North Rhine-Westphalia.“
Oliver Lühr, Projektleiter

The Green Economy Network.NRW (KNUW) started its work at the beginning of 2017. It positions itself as a partner and network manager for the exchange between companies, research, associations,  education, regional agencies, and economic development at regional and local level.

 

The central goal is to strengthen the green economy in NRW by identifying and improving the use of national and international market opportunities.

The KNUW creates visibility in terms of the potential and strengths of NRW’s green economy but also platforms for exchange for putting them to better use, at regional and sub-market level. It supports the market development of the green economy by providing know-how on innovation and market potential in the regions and sub-markets and specifically promotes small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) on their way to international business. As a network manager, the KNUW combines the interests of the green economy, companies, research, associations, and business development.
