BaseN President and CEO Pasi Hurri and Chief Engineer Kaj Niemi join a Business Delegation within an official visit of Mr. Jyrki Katainen, Prime Minister of Finland and Mr. Alexander Stubb, Minister for European Affairs and Foreign Trade of Finland to Doha, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. The visit takes place between March 2 – 7, 2013 and aims at promoting knowledge convergence and cooperation opportunities for Finland and the Middle East.
Due to high investments in innovation and development among diverse disciplines, the demand for next generation technologies is high in Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. The delegation focuses on the industry sectors Energy, Health Care, Construction, ICT and Education. With local representation and ties to the royal family of Qatar, the Gulf Region and especially its ICT and Energy sectors are already well known to BaseN. But with the BaseN Platform being a Big Data management service applicable to a multitude of industries, Mr. Hurri and Mr. Niemi are interested to talk also to representatives of other industry fields during this visit.
