Business opportunities with the green transition

Published: 12 May 2022

Today, H2 Green Steel, SSAB, IUC Norr and Luleå University of Technology with the future areas Creaternity and SUN, as well as the hydrogen investment CH2ESS held an inspiring workshop at Vetenskapens hus for companies about the green transition.

" It was a successful meeting here in Luleå day with many interesting discussions. In April, we gathered about 50 participants in Skellefteå, where we collected a number of ideas about future collaborations and subject areas within green transition to include in the continued work. In June, we will meet in Gällivare with the aim of reaching out to stakeholders in Malmfälten, where a number of important projects have now started", Karl-Andersson said, professor of Pervasive and Mobile Computing at Luleå University of Technology and Leader of Centre for distance spanning technology at Luleå University of Technology, CDT.

Starting point the green transition in northern Sweden

The workshop in Luleå was the second in a series of three creative meetings. The starting point for the workshop was that northern Sweden could become the country's most important industrial center for the large-scale green transition. Questions that aroused commitment were: Where is your company in that transition, what needs and challenges and business opportunities do you have as an entrepreneur? The aim of the meetings is to obtain material for a future application for implementation projects and to document needs and suggestions for future work.

"Hopefully we can start a large-scale project in the beginning of 2023", Karl Andersson says.

A similar workshop will be held in Gällivare on June 2, then with LKAB, Hybrit and Boliden together with local companies.
