Registration deadline

Increased collaboration is key to accelerate innovation and decrease time to market for new solutions. With broad experience from electrifying the private car segment and bringing zero and low emission solutions to the maritime market, as well as having access to renewable energy and highly motivated key stakeholders, Norway is well positioned and feels obligated to take the initiative in creating a joint innovation arena for the regional segment.

The programme Green Aviation Norway was recently launched by the Civil Aviation Authority Norway (regulator), Avinor (airport infrastructure & airspace), SINTEF (research) and the Federation of Norwegian Industries (industry) to coordinate and facilitate the process.

With this conference we aim to bring together key stakeholders who represent the full ecosystem and can play a role in accelerating the green transition. Secondly, we aim to identify key areas to prioritise in the near term and how we can collaborate to develop, test and introduce new solutions faster.

There will be contributions from a broad range of stakeholders – such as the Norwegian Minister of Climate & Environment Mr. Barth Eide, EASA, CAA Norway, the European Commission DG R&I, Widerøe Zero, ENOVA, Clean Aviation Joint Undertaking, environmental organisations, investors, energy suppliers, airport infrastructure and airspace operator Avinor and aircraft- and engine manufacturers.

Each team will be introduced and followed by further interventions, discussions, and summations.
