Abelia invites you to a informal kickstart with the knowledge and technology industry of Norway, as a pre-event to the official conference dinner of Nordic Edge Expo 2018.
The Norwegian Government's own Digital21 Committee has emphasized that public authorities must place more emphasis on their responsibility to contribute to business development. Perhaps smart cities should go ahead as an example of how the government can contribute to success stories, new customers, values and jobs in the private sector. Data is the foundation of all smart solutions. Without data, there will be no smart community. In addition, procurement and public disclosure enables value creation in an innovative Norwegian business community, but unfortunately it is taking too much time.
Is the government ready to take greater responsibility for business development outside its own walls? How can we convert big words into action, and move good intentions to revenue and jobs?
Refreshments, snack and a light meal will be served.
