CHNL takes part in a number of networking activities and knowledge sharing events. In particular, CHNL puts emphasis on bringing relevant Russian, Norwegian, and international companies and organizations together to discuss what changes needs to take place to accelerate commercial shipping along the NEP/NSR as a predictable and reliable trade route and alternative to the common Suez/Cape/Panama Routes.
CHNL also gives a large number of presentations at conferences and workshops in Norway and abroad at events organized by other organizations, and has increasingly been given a central role in many of these events and asked to deliver keynote addresses.
