Technoport is so much more than on-stage program! For those of you who like to get more interactive and hands on, we have the following (in addition to networking and meetings)
Roundtables: These are small group discussions with speakers and experts on specific topics. You’ll see topics like Managing emotions in the innovation process, The New Space Race, and Global Health. Capacity is limited, full program here and registrations are open (via our app)
EXPOS & ACTIVITIES
The Innovation Expo is the perfect place to get hands-on with innovation and strike up a conversation with startups like the NTNU ultrasound spin-off Cimon Medical, space & machine learning wizards at Vake.ai or Danish/Swedish Tendo who’s developing a robotic glove to aid with grip. Or maybe you prefer research projects like SINTEF’s Inachus snake robot, Finnish VTT’s Plastic eating microbes or the University of Agder’s MODRN project using computer modeling of social and religious conflict in Norway for virtual experimentation. See Expo Overview here.
The Playground: Our favorite hangout where you can make new friends while trying things like flying a drone with Arveng Technologies HuMi Smart Glove, Playfinity‘s smart ball or how about trying on the world’s first electric autonomous tail by Costail? Great activities from great startups is a win in our book!
INFLUENCING DECISION MAKERS
Speed Date a Politician: We’re giving startups and researchers the chance to share their problems and input with politicians like Henrik Asheim (Høyre, Chair of the Finance committee), Kari Elisabeth Kaski (SV, Finance committee) and Torstein Tvedt Solberg(Arbeidpartiet, committee on education & research). APPLY HERE.
Lobby Crash Course with Snorre Valen: Want to learn how to influence or lobby with decision makers? Join Snorre Valen for a crash course on the 26th of March (day before conference) and show up to Technoport ultra-prepared! Info and sign up.
Dinner Crawl: If you want to join a group and go out to eat dinner (own expense) between the conference and our party, then sign up for the dinner crawl and meet up by the infodesk at 17.20-17.30
Official After Party: 19.30 at Byscenen. And just so you know: We like our parties to be a little bit different….
