    THIS IS ICE

    ICE is created to boost innovation and entrepreneurship in the Arctic, with Kirkenes as its main hub. This we intend to achieve through cross border cooperation and local events to prompt creative thinking and the entrepreneurial mindset attitude. 

    Our overall goal is to show Kirkenes as attractive to live and establish businesses in. This will  contribute in making our region resistant and robust with Kirkenes as a power center in the northern ecosystem.
