We gathered young talents with diverse backgrounds and experience to work on the problems Clara is seeking to solve every day.

The students explored ideas related to geothermal energy, thorium power, hydrogen batteries and clean offshore fuel cell power. Mentors from Clara Venture Labs provided expert competence to help the students understand the deep technical challenges.

Each group presented their solution, and a dedicated jury selected a winner team - Thorium Solutions!

It was a great pleasure to get to know so many smart and forward-thinking students and receive fresh perspectives on key challenges that Clara is exploring.

We would like to extend a big - thank you - to everyone involved from Aker ASA, Knowit Experience, Clara and others, as well as all the participating students.

We are already looking forward to Clara Idéathon 2023!
