MSc EMINE alumnus Eirik Eide Pettersen achieves the Forbes “30 Under 30 Europe” list!

Achieving a spot on the Forbes “30 Under 30” list for Europe (Manufacturing & Industry) is no small feat. This is the kind of accolade that opens doors and serves as a permanent record, usually the first major one in a series to come, of a person’s career achievements.

InnoEnergy is proud to announce their latest alumni to make the list, Eirik Eide Pettersen, for his work as co-founder of Seaborg Technologies. He joins Govinda Upadhya, Allen Mohammadi and Tanmoy Bari who have all earned their spots on this prestigious list. Eirik’s contribution is Seaborg’s exciting innovation in the nuclear energy field – a Compact Molten Salt Reactor for sustainable, safe, and inexpensive nuclear energy.

We caught up with Eirik to hear what he had to say about this monumental success, and to see if he had any advice for other innovators out there who might have their eyes on this prize.
