We are proud to finally present the theme of 2018 to you; Collaboration in Connection to production. The jury explains the theme as follows:
“When talking about collaboration in connection to production it is often referred to as symbiosis. Symbiosis occurs in nature when two or more biological organisms exchange material, energy or information in a way that is mutually beneficial. Just as in nature, there are many good examples today of collaborations which have resulted in sustainable solutions that could not have been achieved individually by the parties involved. While collaboration often requires courage, innovation and inventiveness, it often helps to bring about environmental improvements, new jobs and business gains.”
