Save the date for GreenLab Summit 2023

GreenLab Summit is where we invite the brightest minds to exchange ideas, inspire each other, and learn from the latest research and pioneer projects. This year, we have raised the bar even higher with a series of prominent international speakers and a showcase of technology companies at the forefront of development.

Wednesday, November 8, 2023

Skyttevej 12-14, 7800 Skive


A conference focusing on green transition in action 
We are on a race to net zero. The clock is ticking, and the deadline for the Paris Agreement is approaching rapidly. It’s time to move from theory to practice and walk the talk. At GreenLab, our focus is on putting the green transition in action, and the GreenLab Summit is where we invite the brightest minds to exchange ideas, inspire and challenge each other, and learn from the latest research and experiences.   

The energy system of the future 
At the event, we will share our latest advances and take you on a journey to the rough edges of the future’s energy system. You will hear from speakers at the forefront of technological development with unique insights into challenges and possible solutions for the green energy transition.

In a joint effort, we will discuss market gaps, assess risks and risk mitigations, try to convert risks into value, look at new business models, and embrace new mindsets to get things done now. It is a space where we encourage co-creation between private and public sectors, academia, and you as a world citizen.  

Program and speakers 
The program for the GreenLab Summit will be updated continuously. Below, you can see the preliminary outline of the day.
