On the 25th of April, we had the pleasure of welcoming Dr. Suphachai Srila, Advisor to the Deputy Minister of Education of Thailand and Chairman of the Working Group on Vocational Education Strategy and Policy, and his delegation from the Ministry of Education to our facilities in Aarhus.

Dr. Suphachai’s delegation visited Denmark with the purpose of strengthening collaborations within the two countries. Denmark has close collaborations with Thailand, in particular in Agriculture development. A major joint-venture project called Thai Danish Dairy Farm, which started in 1962, attempted to transfer Danish knowledge and experience in farming and milk production to Thailand. The country has a significant industrial sector and is an integral part of the global supply chain. In addition, EKF announced that need of Thailand to increase the need for health infrastructure, creating thus a huge potential for Danish export companies.

The delegation followed up on the training program of Thai students from College of Agriculture and Technology in livestock farms in Denmark, and met with UV Medico’s Executives to discuss about cooperation on science, technology, and education.

Visit to Aarhus and Kolding Hospital

UV Medico also organised trips for the delegation to visit Aarhus University Hospital (AUH) and Kolding Hospital. Both institutions have been pioneers in using Far UV-C in their facilities. AUH decided to use UV222™ lamps in the lung department since last year, and Kolding Hospital has installed 55 lamps as part of a research study that investigates their impact on staff sick leave, and hospital-acquired infections among patients. Christian Holm, our Chief Virologist, guided the members of the delegation, who were very interested in the technology and how the personnel had received the lamps.
