Welcome to Northern Connections!

Welcome to Northern Connections! We are a partnership of 22 clusters, cities, regions and knowledge institutions working together to create innovation connections between enterprises and clusters in the energy sector.

"People are the source of innovation be they in a specific industry, the academia or the public sector. Innovation could be as easy as an elevator pitch for an unexpected encounter or as complex as unifying a dozen different partners towards a common vision. It’s not necessarily the quest for the holy grail, but rather a fruitful sharing of experiences and mutual adapting of best practice that provides the foundation for innovation.
