Co-create solutions for the green energy transition of Elgeseter!

Climathon is a global movement at city level that offers a clear pathway to bottom-up climate action. At its core, a yearly ideathon takes place in over one hundred cities across many continents. The participants come together to co-create forward-thinking ideas that tackle local climate challenges.

The City of Trondheim has been a Climathon host since 2016. Previously we've had four rounds of intensive 24h-ideathon. In the challenging year of 2020, we went fully digital for a 12h-ideathon. This time, we plan for a 12h-ideathon at Bøker & bylab in Trondheim.  

Trondheim Municipality and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) work closely to pull this year’s events together. Climathon Trondheim 2021 is yet another example that showcases the University City TRD3.0, an unique and pioneering model.

How to make the innovation district Elgeseter the world-class living lab for green energy transition?

Previously, Climathon Trondheim 2020 brought focus to the Knowledge Axis (Kunnskapsaksen), which is the area stretching from Sluppen in the south to the waterfront Brattøra and Nyhavna in the north. The area is called the “Knowledge Axis” as it is concentrated with many prominent knowledge actors from research, education, industry and the public sector in Trondheim, among others NTNU and SINTEF. This knowledge-intensive area is an innovation playground for smart and sustainable Trondheim.

This time we zoom in a bit more. Elgeseter lies in the heart of the Knowledge Axis. Trondheim Tech Port is a newly established partnership which aims to make this area a world-class innovation district. This district is interesting and relevant for green energy transition for many reasons. Trondheim has the reputation of being the Norwegian capital of technology. This gives us a good starting point to be the frontrunner in the green transition the world urgently needs. When we have the ambition to make Elgeseter a world-class innovation district, why not also make it an exciting living lab for green energy transition as well, showcasing an optimal interplay between technology, market and people?
