Public Procurement in Norway

PPVisma is proud, in cooperation with Difi (Agency for Public Management and eGovernment), to invite you to a seminar regarding public procurement in Norway. The seminar is in English and is free of charge.

The Norwegian public sector is an important market. Annually public entities buy goods and services for approximately NOK 400 billion. The contracts vary widely in scope, which implies that both Norwegian or non-Norwegian private enterprises should be able to tender for profitable opportunities. The seminar will cover topics as:

  • How to find public tender invitations
  • How to qualify for participating in tenders
  • Issues that non-Norwegian enterprises must know
  • Filing of tender documents
  • e-invoicing
  • Legal issues – handling of complaints

Time: Thursday 22 January 2015. Registration 08.45-09.00, seminar 09.00-11.30. Where: Visma building at Bjørvika, Dronning Eufemias gate 16. BNCC

Entrepreneurship culture among Lithuanians in Norway

Lithuanian-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with Oslo International Hub is welcoming to a discussion meeting on how to build the entrepreneurship culture among the Lithua??????????????????nians in Norway.

Lithuanians are the 3rd biggest immigrant group in Norway. According to SSB there are near 50.000 Lithuanians in Norway. Lithuanians are also one of the most educated nations in Europe:
  • 1st in the EU: 93% of population have secondary or higher education,
  • 3rd in the EU: 51% of population aged 24-34 have a university degree,
  • 16th in the World: quality of math and science education
  • 52% of population speaks at least 2 foreign languages

Many of the Lithuanians that are in Norway has higher education and work experience from their home country that is not fully capitalised in Norway. Norway is lacking experienced and educated specialist. Many of these specialists are already in the country, but their knowledge is not exploited due to the lack of the Norwegian language skills or because specialists lack the professional network in Norway.

It is brain-drain for Lithuania and brain-waste for Norway.

Lithuanian-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce (LNCC) would like to invite all interested parties to discuss this issue and see how LNCC with partners could assist both Lithuanians specialists in Norway and Norway itself to capitalise the existing competence in the country.
PROGRAMME:

  • Opening note by Vita Melinauskaite, Managing Director, Lithuanian-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce
  • Giedrius Statulevicius, Serial Entrepreneur, sharing his experiences of entering the entrepreneurship culture and environment in Norway.
  • Jørn Lein-Mathisen, Oslo International Hub – Challenges and advantages when starting your own company.
  • Discussion and Workshop “How to build an entrepreneurship culture among the Lithuanians in Norway”, moderated by Jørn Lein-Mathisen, Managing Director, Oslo International Hub

TIME: 17:00-19:00 13.10.2104, during Oslo Innvation Week
PLACE: Dronning Mauds gt 11, Oslo

Enhancing the cultural events offer together

20140903_195220_2Last week LNCC was invited by the Norwegian-Latvian Culture Society to the meeting for Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian Culture Societies in Oslo, as well as the Norwegian-Latvian Chamber of Commerce to discuss how all these organisations could work together through joint meetings and projects.

We were welcomed by Latvian Ambassador to Norway H.E. Mr. Indulis Ābelis, who welcomed the initiative to work together and expressed his interest to support common efforts in the future.

It is important that we all find an active part in the society that we live in. Therefore, we congratulate this initiative to join forces to build an even better cultural offer for Norway.

People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully. I’m actually as proud of the things we haven’t done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.
