About GreenLab Academy

Mission-driven research that solves real problems

We live in a world where the challenges we face are highly complex; climate change, global warming, resource scarcity, and energy security to name a few. Complex challenges call for new knowledge that can only be created through new approaches to research and innovation. At GreenLab, we work with mission-driven research. Mission-driven research translates big challenges – or so-called wicked problems – into doable problems that can be solved by connecting the right people. Often it means connecting researchers with business and other stakeholders.  

Our focus and overall mission 

Our focus is on problems connected to the green transition and the unnecessary waste of energy and resources in industrial processes. The overall mission of GreenLab’s research platform is to contribute to the development of a coherent energy system that creates a power shift at an industrial level. We want energy to be produced, used, and shared in new ways that help move the green transition forward and find solutions that can benefit all of society.  

We turn theory into practice and develop new markets 

Our international research platform focuses on applied research, testing results in real-life and upscaling and accelerating what has only been done on a small scale. We work primarily at the higher levels of the TRL scale, and our active research projects are all in the technology demonstration or system development phase. We have a strong focus on the commercialization of solutions, and we continuously look for new revenue streams and market opportunities to promote the circular economy.
