Innovation in Bergen – Bergen Digital Summit 2018
Til det årlige seminaret med ambassadørene til Norge ser vi fram til å presentere noe av den seneste utviklingen innen innovasjon og digital transformering I Bergens-regionen.
For centuries Bergen has been a city boasting innovation and entrepreneurship. Not least in the areas of commerce and culture, and the city and its region has played a key role for Norwegian cultural development and commercial enterprise, both regarding maritime and marine innovation, energy and financial competence. For the last decade Bergen and its growing number of clusters have developed world leading companies with regards to digital solutions and innovation, and during the last few years Bergen has made substantial contributions towards making Norway one of the world’s most digital countries.
For our annual seminar with the ambassadors to Norway, we are greatly looking forward to presenting you with some of the latest developments in innovation and digital transformation in the Bergen region. This includes contributions from the ongoing construction of Equinor’s new «digital command centers» that will lead to great changes in the company’s operations in the North Sea, our FinTech-cluster, Bergen Media City and the way the City of Bergen is developing new solutions that are not just changing the city’s own services but are offering solutions to be used by all municipalities and government agencies in Norway.
This year the Bergen International Festival and the City of Bergen are co-hosting the Bergen Digital Summit 2018, and together we are launching new digital strategies to explore how digital transformation can both create new possibilities and pose threats to our cultural institutions. The City has also collected a large number of digital events during the festival period – Bergen Nå / Bergen Now.
The seminar is exclusively for invited ambassadors to Norway and key business actors from global companies operating from Western Norway, and is hosted by the Bergen Chamber of Commerce, together with the Bergen International Festival and the City of Bergen.
Welcome greetings by
- Mayor of Bergen, Marte Mjøs Persen
- Bergen International Festival, CEO & Artistic Director Anders Beyer
- Bergen Chamber of Commerce and Industry, CEO Marit Warnche
