Topics include geopolitics, demographics, access to resources, sustainable solutions, shifts in the energy markets and the emergence of disruptive technologies. All these factors have a direct impact on business, academics and public policy.
Global Outlook Norway aims at strengthening the role of business leaders, politicians and academicians, as well as the entire business and academic community, by increasing awareness of the global trends that are setting the agenda going forward. Businesses can and should play a leading role in shaping the global, regional and industrial agendas.
GCE NODE, Eyde Cluster, Maritimt Forum Sør and The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs organize the event. The Minister of Foreign Affairs is also invited to hold the opening presentation in 2017. Global Outlook Norway is part of the official program for Arendalsuka.
