Norwegian leaders have stated their clear ambitions to position Norway at the forefront of eHealth opportunities, and to strengthen Nordic collaboration in the area of digital transformation. Blockchain and Distributed Ledgers, alongside Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things, are increasingly recognized as transformational technologies for the Health sector. This meeting aims to shape that future together with some of the most advanced technologists in this space.


Who should join us

If you are an eHealth decision maker, professional or innovator, and recognize the need for Norway and partner countries to stand at the forefront of digital innovation.  If you want to assess the rationale for exploring the potential of new exponential technologies such as Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things across the whole Healthcare system.

If you have heard about Bitcoin, Blockchain and Distributed Ledgers, and want to know why and how some of the world’s largest IT companies, startups and governments are already accelerating R&D and innovation in this space.

If you want to demystify this technology, cut through the hype, and get tangible ideas for how this technology can be harnessed together with a new fast-moving public private innovation community.
