• AURORAL – Digitization as a tool to reduce the centralization

AURORAL is an H2020 project that will connect digital services to create mutual value. The goal is that it results in new services and new ways of creating jobs, at the same time as it can make it attractive to live in the region outside the largest cities – Ståle Walderhaug, CEO of SINTEF Nord AS

• Health apps: digital transformation in health. Most of us are familiar with the Health Book where we sign up for the Corona vaccine. How can I really become a Norway’s largest private health platform in 6 months and at the same time get 12,000 health personnel into the solution? Not least, what will the Health Book be for you as a private person? – Marius Christensen, general manager of HelseApps AS

• AKTI – Better capacity utilization through digital solutions.

Akti is an app that helps tourism operators reach the local population by taking advantage of price differentiation and last-minute offers. Will the tourism industry become more sustainable from capacity utilization? Do you want to buy more short-distance experiences if it is cheaper and available on your mobile? – Sigurd Birk Hansen, general manager, Akti

We are ending the evening with a panel debate with all speakers and are happy to take questions from the audience.
