DIG in Arendalsuka

Arendalsuka is the largest political gathering in Norway held annually in mid-August since 2012. For five days, the city of Arendal is filled with an interesting and educational variety of exhibitions and events.

“I am looking forward to coming back to Arendalsuka this year. It is inspiring to meet our partners and other interesting people from business, politics or academia to discuss and challenge each other,” says NHH Professor and Director of DIG Bram Timmermans.   

Bram will participate in three debates organized by DIG partners Virke and Tietoevry. Both Virke and Tieto Evry are putting data sharing on the agenda. 
“Data sharing can promote innovation, increase efficiency and contribute to more sustainable solutions. But it can also entail a risk of impaired privacy, security and ethical challenges. I am looking forward to taking part in these debates and hope to meet many current and future DIG partners there,” says Bram.  

DIG will take part in the following events in Arendalsuka 2023:
