During the last eight years NHH Norwegian School of Economics, has made significant research footprints in the area of service innovation (supported by Research Council Norway, SFI CSI). One brain child of this research is The Norwegian Innovation Index (NII) - an index that currently has been «exported» to USA, Sweden, and Finland.

In keeping with NHH’s strategy - doing relevant and interesting research in a rigorous manner benefitting leaders - we are delighted to invite for a half-day seminar featuring sustainable innovation strategies.

As part of the seminar you will learn from Ivar Horneland Kristensen, CEO of VIRKE and NHH alumn, Tor W. Andreassen, professor of innovations at NHH, and four industry leaders all sharing thoughts and experiences on the topic. We are closing the seminar by celebrating the best of the best within two categories: commercial and social innovations.
