ICE KIRKENES 

ICE is the entrepreneurship community in Kirkenes. It's about creating new ways of doing, thinking and collaborating. It's a platform for innovation and growth. Nothing remarkable has been done alone, but with the right minded people everything is possible. That's what brings ICE people together.

ICE stands for

Innovation, Community, and Entrepreneurship

The ICE Events concept is owned and developed in collaboration between the Norwegian Barents Secretariat and Sør-Varanger Utvikling (SVU). The Barents Secretariat is responsible for the overall project, SVU is for the project concept.

 

ICE started as an innovation festival in 2019, where we gathered creative people in Kirkenes to solve societal challenges. We were tired of typical conferences with long speeches, big words and little action: We wanted to get the participants to actually do something.

In 2020, we arranged two digital innovation festivals «ICE - Hack the crisis» and «ICE Global». Now it's time to get people onsite again.

Today, we continue to develop the ICE concept with the goal to boost innovation and entrepreneurship in the Arctic, with Kirkenes as its main hub. This we aim to achieve through cross-border cooperation and events to prompt creative thinking and the entrepreneurial mindset attitude

We woldn't be here without them!
