Reaching net zero air transport by 2030 is a key goal according to Swedavia. During this event, representatives from the company will share how they are working to drive the shift to more sustainable aviation fuel and how they are preparing for aircraft powered by electricity, hydrogen gas, or other new technologies.

They will also share how new technology could make airports safer, more efficient, and more connected to other modes of transportation. You will also hear what opportunities for collaboration might exist for KTH startups, students and researchers.

Lunch will be provided.
