Building Oslo's innovation ecosystem

All about the new Innovation District and what's to come!

Join us to explore Oslo's new innovation district on 4 April from 15:00 to 16:00 at Rebel. This physical event is co-hosted by Oslo Business Region and Oslo Metropolitan Area and it will be the first of a 3-part meeting series on IDS Innovation, Infrastructure and Identity.

Innovasjonsdistrikt Sentrum (IDS) is a defined area of Oslo's city center where knowledge institutions and knowledge-intensive businesses will gather and collaborate with entrepreneurs, incubators, investors and the public sector to promote innovation, creativity and commercialization of ideas.

With this session on Innovation, the aim is to spark dialogue across public and private sectors to ensure that IDS brings maximum value to Oslo and the startup ecosystem.
