Leaders from business, start-ups, academia and research institutions are meeting at the Xynteo Exchange/Norway to advance a new growth model fit for the 21st century. At the heart of the Exchange is a series of Studios, where we will bring leaders together to try to develop commercial solutions to human problems.
Economic growth means an increasing demand for energy, with potentially great environmental and climate impacts. But, as Norway is already beginning to demonstrate, through the electrification of society, increased use of renewable energy, digitalisation and new business solutions, growth can be green. Today, businesses increasingly share a common ambition of driving the change agenda, joining forces across industries and nations to build green competitiveness.
In this studio, hosted by Statkraft in partnership with Innovation Norway, we aim to explore how Norway can serve as a lab for the innovations required to scale clean energy solutions fit for the future.
On day one, we will interrogate the complex nature of real-world problems, and explore how our capabilities could be brought to bear in solutions. On day two, we will identify potential interventions within these problem areas, with the aim of developing early-stage concepts for projects that can deliver both human and commercial value. Finally, we will select the most promising concepts to present in the Marketplace
