Multilateral matchmaking event, organised by Innovation Norway, focused on Green Industry and ICT, took place on 2-3 March, 2020 in Sentralen Oslo, Marble Hall. The main target group were companies and institutions aiming at participation in the calls under the EEA and Norway Grants from countries implementing the business programme. 

There were registered 143 participants from 14 beneficiary countries at this matchmaking event. Three business participants were from Slovakia: Archee, E-Vision Systems and General European Innovation Group. Archee as a start-up dealing with renewable resources, gave a short on-stage (pitch) presentation at the event. All of them had an opportunity to meet at B2B meetings with other companies specializing in: 
- development and implementation of “greener production processes” using automatisation, digitalisation, robotisation of industrial processes and technologies;
- increasing efficiency of production and industry in general;
- innovative development of ICT products/processes/solutions; and
- development of environmentally friendly products/processes/solutions using ICT components.

Slovak participants managed to establish new contacts with Norwegian companies with the aim to develop bilateral partnership projects that would apply for the upcomming calls of the Bussines Development, Innovation and SME´s Programme.
