Novatron Fusion Group showcased its fusion energy ambitions at the historic Banque de Suède in Paris this week after joining delegates for the French Swedish Business Summit.

The Summit followed high-level exchanges between Sweden and France in the wake of the Swedish Presidency of the European Union Council, in the first six months of the year.

Organised by the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in France in collaboration with the Swedish Embassy, Business Sweden, the French Embassy and Business France in Sweden, the 2023 outing built on the Innovation Partnership Act which the two nations formed in 2017.

With a theme of “Strategic innovation collaborations for a competitive Europe”, the event provided a platform to disclose new strategic areas of cooperation under the recently updated partnership act.

Attended by Sweden’s State Secretary for Foreign Trade Håkan Jevrell and France’s Minister Delegate for Industry Roland Lescure, a plethora of business leaders and academics took to the stage, including representatives from NATO Innovation, Saab AB, EDF, Scania, Ericsson, Alfa Laval, Volvo, Helsing, Blykalla, the Institut Polytechnique de Paris and KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

The conference was moderated by Novatron Fusion Group Chief Communication Officer Linda Nyberg, who led a broad range of panel discussions including ‘Setting the foundation of competitiveness by innovation and collaboration’, ‘Talents, competences and skills for competitiveness’ and ‘Resilience for an industrial sustainable transformation’.

“We were thrilled to support this year’s French Swedish Summit, and to engage in stimulating conversations about how best to drive competitiveness in Europe through innovation and collaboration. In particular, we were able to examine how France and Sweden can accelerate partnerships in strategic fields such as aerospace, mobility, AI, cyber security and energy with examples of best practices.”

Also in attendance was Novatron Fusion Group Director of Partnership Philip von Segebaden, who represented the firm at the French-Swedish Tech & Innovation Exhibition.

“The Novatron team has been on the road this last week attending high level summits in the UK and France to raise greater profile and awareness of fusion technology,” said Philip. “We are here to deliver a clear message that fusion technology is firmly moving from the R&D conceptual stage into engineering and industrialization. At Novatron, we are now embarking on a critical phase in our journey as we prepare to build our first test facility with the goal of having a commercial reactor ready in ten years.”
