His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon is interested in Norwegian trade, industry and innovation, and has been involved especially in entrepreneurship and the green transition.

When it comes to environmental issues, the Crown Prince combines his interest in sustainable development with innovation. He believes that technical innovations entail an environmental component and will help to solve the challenges facing society.

“We are delighted that H.R.H. Crown Prince Haakon has agreed to open this year’s Nordic Edge Expo. The themes of the conference largely reflect the Crown Prince’s areas of interest”, says Stig Finnesand, CEO of Nordic Edge.
