SINTEF, NTNU and Rambøll is hosting an industry conference on how Norwegian industry can contribute to the development of "the fifth transport system" - hyperloop.

The Hyperloop concept has gained a lot of attention lately and is part of the future transport solution for goods and individuals. The Nordic Council stated after a meeting on hyperloop 26 June: "Hyperloop is one of several innovative transport solutions that highlight the need to resurrect the Nordic Council of Transport Ministers" - Pyry Niemi, Chairman, Committee for Growth and Development in the Nordic Region

The aim of the conference is to find ways to make sure that hyperloop will be part of the future transport solution in Norway and in the Nordic region.
