Novatron Fusion Group joined a select group of innovators welcoming the King and Queen of Denmark to KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm – as part of a broader State Visit strengthening bilateral relations on foreign, security and defence policy, as well as innovation and research.

Organised by invitation of Sweden’s Majesty The King Carl XVI Gustaf, it marked newly crowned Danish King Frederik X’s first State Visit following his accession to the throne in January, and the first incoming State Visit from Denmark since 1985.

Royal guests were accompanied by Vice-prime Minister and Minister of Defence Troels Lund Poulsen, Minister for Foreign Affairs Lars Løkke Rasmussen, Minister for Industry, Business and Financial Affairs Morten Bødskov and Minister for Taxation Jeppe Bruus.

Sweden’s Government was represented by Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson, Minister for Energy, Business and Industry and Deputy Prime Minister Ebba Busch, Minister for Foreign Affairs Tobias Billström, Minister for Schools Lotta Edholm, Minister for Defence Pål Jonson, Minister for EU Affairs Jessika Roswall and Minister for Culture Parisa Liljestrand.

The welcoming party at KTH Royal Institute of Technology – one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities – included President Anders Söderholm, Sweden’s Minister for Schools Lotta Edholm and Denmark’s Minister for Foreign Affairs Lars Løkke Rasmussen.

A panel discussion followed on the role of space exploration and technology for a sustainable future, with The King and Queen of Sweden and the Danish King and Queen meeting Swedish astronauts Christer Fuglesang and Marcus Wandt and Danish astronaut Andreas Mogensen.

Alongside the selected participants and companies, Novatron Fusion Group’s Inventor and Chief Technology Officer Jan Jäderberg, and Physicist Katarina Bendtz also spoke with the Queen of Denmark and the Queen of Sweden on the topic of fusion energy, while showcasing ongoing preparations to launch its first official test facility – the N1 – at the world-renowned site.

It comes after engineers at Novatron Fusion Group recently completed a complex multi-system integration project to create plasma, marking a Scandinavian first and raising ambitions for the Nordics’ fusion energy sector.
