Fall Conference 2016

Fall Conference 2016

Economic growth in Norway has to a big extent been based on the extraction of oil from the North Sea. The scarcity of the resource, its price volatility and a growing environmental concern has forced the Norwegian government to shift away from an oil based economy towards a more diversified one. This shift has led to a strong focus on innovation from the Norwegian government. Investments in R&D and other actions aim to create an environment that fosters many new businesses and entrepreneurs. What opportunities are out there? How can their potential be realized through the support of policymakers? What is the way to create a new pillar for the Norwegian economy?

This year’s conference had 4 speakers each with their own very exciting topic, almost 100 people showed up to listen to them.
