EIT Manufacturing CLC North: Driving manufacturing innovation in Northern Europe!

EIT Manufacturing North AB (CLC North), one of the five Co-Location Centers (CLCs) of the EIT Manufacturing Knowledge and Innovation Community, is based in the dynamic Lindholmen Science Park in Gothenburg, Sweden. We serve eight countries across Northern Europe: Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and the UK.

Together with our partners, our network and our ecosystem, we make innovation happen by accelerating the rate at which scientific advances can be turned into marketable innovations. This is done by connecting the North regional eco-system to know-how, investment and infrastructure across Europe – and by focusing on industrialising solutions with high technology-readiness levels. We aim to support global manufacturing’s progress in the direction of both environmental and social sustainability while ensuring that innovation continues to be led by Europe.

CLC North currently has eight Member-Partners
