Plans for the future.
SIVA TECH AS changed name to SIVA International Management AS. SIVA International Management helps SIVA's network in Norway to connect to our network abroad, in Russia, Bosnia, Croatia and Romania. This initiative is in cooperation with NIN, a networking organization for business gardens in Norway.
SIVA International Management has proved the effectiveness of implementing Norwegian innovation concepts in the developing countries. Its activities bring mutual benefit both for Norwegian and local businesses. Now the core center of SIVA international operations is the Northwest Russia (Murmansk Region), where SIVA IM establishes the standards for further projects.
In the nearest future SIVA is going to develop further its activities in existing projects, however, we are open for other possibilities as well. SIVA IM is the operator for SIVA SF working internationally
