The markets for hydrogen & fuel cell technology are rapidly expanding, and Europe is taking a lead. The Norwegian hydrogen business community is expanding into new ventures and applications and exciting new consortia are being created at a higher pace than ever. The aim for business and research both in Norway and Europe is to secure and expand the lead.

Join our seminar where we will discuss how to develop the hydrogen value chain in Norway and Europe, as well as introduce EIT InnoEnergy and its different investment programs.

EIT InnoEnergy has since 2010 invested more than 500 million Euro in 250+ companies, and offers both accelerator programs for startups and innovation project funding for consortia comprised of SMEs and large corporates. Norwegian companies are fully eligible as EIT InnoEnergy is part of the wider Horizon Europe program.


EIT InnoEnergy accelerates sustainable energy innovations across Europe. Our Europe-wide network brings together 460+
business, academic and research partners, who have indirect access to 150 million energy consumers.

The Norwegian Hydrogen Forum is a nonprofit members’ association for conveying and promoting the advantages of hydrogen as an energy carrier in Norway. Our more than 60 members span Norwegian industry, universities, research institutes and other organizations.

The Norwegian Hydrogen Cluster is a newly established national business cluster within hydrogen & fuel cell technology comprised of 29 companies, research institutions, incubators and technology development actors in Norway.

NTNU Energy is one of NTNU's four strategic areas 2014 - 2023. Development and integration of a renewable and sustainable energy supply is a key challenge for the world community. NTNU commits itself to contribute to such a transition by minimizing the ecological footprint in developing the existing resources, and to massively invest in research related to renewable energy sources, storage solutions, energy consumption and transportation. NTNU is the first partner of InnoEnergy in Norway and hosts a joint position for boosting business creation and innovation.
