Oslo Innovation Week is a time when some of the world’s most innovative leaders get together to present their latest ideas in Oslo, Norway. While this year’s conference is happening on couches and around coffee tables instead of in conference rooms or outside along the fjord, it’s set to stir up some of the most creative conversations yet. All are invited to attend this digital week of talks and workshops from September 21 to 25. Choose from more than 70 events across topics like sustainable energy and green tech, health innovation, and the future of work. Here are five highlights.
