EIT Manufacturing Co-Location North is formally established!
The EIT Manufacturing Community is expanding in the North. On February 17 our Co-Location Centre North was registered as the formal Swedish corporation EIT Manufacturing North AB.
“It is really great to have the corporation formally established, so that real operations can begin” – says Professor Johan Stahre, who is the interim director of CLC North and the interim director of Innovation in EIT Manufacturing. He also refers that “EIT Manufacturing will be a great entrepreneurial and educational asset to the northern countries of Europe. It will facilitate pan-European networking and it will create unprecedented innovative collaboration be-tween European manufacturing players.” Finally he mentions that “The CLC’s location in Gothenburg is quite convenient for the northern countries as a whole, and most industries in this region face similar opportunities and problems. In the North, we have for example a long history of excellence in sustainability, digitalisation, and work-design. Through joint efforts, coordinated by CLC North, we will certainly be able to contribute to the rest of Europe on the EIT Manufacturing platform.”
We welcome the Co-Location developments in the North and look forward to many success stories.
