Work in an exciting context where everything is possible!

In the coming years, multi-billion sums will be invested in Norrbotten and Västerbotten in large projects that will make society more sustainable – both nationally and globally. Northern Sweden is at the forefront of the green transition and what is happening here right now is unique. As CEO of ACE, you will work in an extremely exciting context where you influence societal transformation in your daily work.

Northern Sweden, with its access to green electricity and valuable raw material deposits, has outstanding conditions to establish itself as the center of the sustainable society of the future. Development has already begun with the expansion of Europe’s largest gigafactory for battery production in Skellefteå. This creates great opportunities, but also challenges.

In order to succeed in establishing northern Sweden as a competence hub for the electrification of society, Northvolt, Skellefteå Municipality, Skellefteå Kraft, RISE, and Luleå University of Technology have joined forces and formed the Arctic Center of Energy (ACE). The ambition is clear. Together, we will create an international world-class education and research environment, developed in close collaboration with industry and society.
