About this year's topic: Innovation and digital transformation
Society at large is at a tipping point. Never have the expectations on our society been higher. Yet many of the challenges we face – the climate change, a global pandemic and inequality, to name a few – may seem impossible to resolve in other ways than by putting restraints on our current lifestyle.

Still, we know we can solve great challenges rapidly when we put our minds to it – just look at the way digital solutions have transformed our businesses during the Covid-19 pandemic. We need to rethink the challenges and find new solutions – with innovation and digital transformation as essential tools in our toolbox.

Strategic matchmaking: Explore the opportunities in future offshore windfarms in the Baltics

This is part of the EU green deal to reach the target of climate neutral EU by 2050. There is also targets for year 2030, where EU has a target to have 60 GW installed in Europe. In light of this ambition to develop offshore wind in the Baltics, we are now arranging a session during Innovation Day with focus on the opportunities in future offshore windfarms in the Baltics!

Karlskrona – 340 years of innovation

It's in our DNA. The ability to find innovative solutions to major challenges. Through innovative thinking, ingenuity and courage, we have proven that nothing is impossible. And we continue to prove it – generation after generation. Sometimes it takes a certain amount of madness to create something unique. Perhaps Charles XI was aware of this when he built a war city on islands, far out at sea and without drinking water. And perhaps it was precisely there that Karlskrona's rich innovation history began. Challenges breed innovation. Read the full article
