Digital North

Woman with 3D glasses

We live in exponential times. Digitalisation is reshaping and disrupting the traditional structures of our society. Governments and businesses in the Nordic-Baltic region have to adjust and adapt to stay in front of the digital transformation.

The Digital North 2017 Conference will connect the highest level of government with CEOs from the private sector and leading academic experts - all in an effort to cultivate entrepreneurship and innovation, and create concepts for closer digital cooperation and digital transition in the Nordic-Baltic region.

Program highlights

  • The Norwegian minister of EEA and EU affairs, Frank Bakke-Jensen, will open the conference and the Nordic-Baltic Ministers responsible for digitalisation will adopt a common declaration on Digital North
  • Insightful keynotes from international leading industry experts and top managers from the public and private sector
  • Fireside chats and panel discussions with the European policy-makers and leaders from the digital- and startup ecosystem

Several interactive sessions where participants are asked to bring their input, help develop ongoing initiatives and new collaboration projects

The event is by invitation only.
