Demo North Summit 2020

Over 3 days in February 2020, over 250 business leaders, investors, innovators and policy delegates from 15 different countries gathered in Luleå & Piteå for the first ever Demo North Summit.

Through Demo North 2020, prominent local companies such as Northvolt and Hybrit amongst others delivered keynote speeches about their innovations, as did international giants such as NASA and Facebook. In addition, guests were invited to visit local businesses on technical visits to learn more about how Norrbotten is implementing new innovations and technologies to reduce the climate impact of various industries.
