IMDi Project Kick-off & Gathering successfully held

By Xiuhua.Zhang - Posted on 09 May 2012

The kickoff gathering was held in the Research Park on 3rd May. 65 registered participants were from the following countries: India, China, Canada, Norway, Singapore, Serbian, South African and Germany.

Dr. Silvija Seres shared her own experience with participants and gave very good advice in making the balance among carrier, family and health. Karen Kristine Bårje from the trade union Tekna introduced the concept “The Norwegian Model”, which is applied to describe the distinguishing features in the organization of working life in Norway. Many questions and answers are undertaken. The interactive discussion took place through the whole gathering. All participants left with concrete and useful information, which will aid their working life in Norway.

The project entitled «Immigrant Competence Center” (Kompetansesenter for Innvandrere in Norwegian) is financed by the Norwegian Immigrant Authority, Integrerings- og Mangfoldsdirektoratet (IMDi) and run by the Chinese Professionals in Norway (CPN, for the third year since 2010.
