Focus areas

ACT will contribute to growth and connect companies across industries. The cluster will build expertise at all levels, develop innovation, and contribute to the commercialization and scaling of solutions. The cluster will develop projects for the common good and build infrastructure that accelerates innovative development. Collaboration across value chains strengthens the culture of innovation in companies.

New green value chains

“The effort to achieve the global sustainability goals affects existing value chains and introduces new ones. Electrification, carbon reduction and circular economy provide opportunities for green value chains in battery, hydrogen, bioenergy and CCU. ACT has projects in all these areas, and will develop, pilot, and establish the industry of the future. The cluster will contribute to growth, and connects actors across industries”

Digital transformation and sustainability

“The companies are participating in a technological race, and investors are moving their portfolios to companies with good value propositions to achieve the sustainability goals. The partnership will not be able to realize the green shift without a significant boost of knowledge in digitization and sustainability. The cluster will build expertise at all levels, develop innovations and contribute to the commercialization and scaling of solutions”

Infrastructure for innovative development

“Good projects related to infrastructure make resources more accessible to business and research environments and contribute to building expertise and R&D capacity. There is a significant need for investment in new infrastructure in the north for digital transformation and for development of sustainable solutions. The cluster will develop projects for the common good and build infrastructure which accelerates innovative development”

Cluster development

“In order to achieve restructuring and renewal, ACT must be a catalyst for competence development and innovation collaboration. ACT is anchored at management level, and the companies make senior managers available for strategic work in boards and working groups. The partnership identifies and prioritizes challenges, and together they raise the level of ambition. An expert group strengthens coordination towards ongoing initiatives nationally and internationally. Collaboration across value chains strengthens the culture of innovation in companies”
