– Building the Scandinavian Silicon Valley of the Battery Industry

The green shift is certainly on the rise and that offers tremendous opportunities for the Nordic countries. We are seeing a new industry being shaped that will have a huge impact, not only in the Nordics but globally as well.

These huge investments will in the early stage, not only require efforts in building new infrastructure, but also new logistic solutions. In the next phase this new ecosystem will require a new way of working together cross different industries and between companies and clusters.

This will bring forward both opportunities and challenges that we need to overcome. Through this event we want to offer an opportunity for everyone to get involved. In our matchmaking session we want actors from all Nordic countries to have the opportunity to connect and plan their future in this new ecosystem.
