Two new cleantech hubs at opposite ends of the earth have joined forces. That’s to expand the burgeoning industry across the world.
A Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the state government of South Australia and Flinders University. For that’s to link the cleantech hubs to innovative Tonsley industrial park with Prospect Silicon Valley. It’s a similar project in the United States.
The Cleantech hubs partnership enhances opportunities for Australian cleantech companies. Especially to find like-minded US companies. For it helps American companies tap into new technologies and academic research.
Tonsley, Flinders University, and Prospect Silicon Valley will share information. Moreover and work together. Especially to enhance cleantech hubs development. In addition to developing a lively community. That’s of partner companies both here in Adelaide and in San Jose.
“The MoU also commits the three parties to jointly promote and endorse Tonsley and the Environmental Innovation Centre in San Jose to national and international audiences.”
The global network of specialized research and innovation hubs. For it is often referred to as the Global Green Economy. The concept of a Green Economy has been popular. Especially in the last twenty years, but is just now starting to spread internationally. It is a time of transition with the goal of shifting away from the current economic order that does not contribute to sustainable human and environmental well-being.
Of course, there is no one-size-fits-all solution and the type of hub will vary from country to country. For example, in the United States and Canada there are a couple dozen green economy projects from the public and private sectors, but there are more than 500 in China alone. In Canada, there are a number of economic development agencies focusing on the building of green businesses, while in the United States there is the U.S. Green Building Council and the U.S. Green Building Advisor.
