Every year Oslo Science Park, Inven2, the University of Oslo and Conventor host one of Norway’s largest science and technology events – the Cutting Edge festival ( www.cuttingedgefestival.no ). The festival is part of Oslo Innovation Week – Europe’s largest innovation convention and one of its biggest events. At the Cutting Edge we present the latest breakthroughs in science, the most interesting innovations, and the most exciting startup companies to come out of the Norwegian research communities. It is a truly exciting event, where Norway’s brightest researchers, technologists and entrepreneurs meet people from business, industry, government and media. Every year, we also invite handpicked international guest speakers and technology leaders, to present and showcase important and interesting developments in science and technology from other parts of the world.

We have a broad, mixed audience consisting of investors, technologist, industry and business people, scientist and public-sector representatives. They are all here to discover the “cutting edge” in different fields and are passionate about technology enabled possibilities. This year we are focusing on the possibilities of “The Toolbox” – with AI, IoT and Bio enablers.

Here is some of what we have achieved in 2017:

  • Last year we set a new attendance record with
    over 1500 participants. The event was very successful and Oslo Innovation Weeks biggest.
  • Statistics show that Cutting Edge gets most media coverage in national and international media
    of all the 70 events during Oslo Innovation Week.
  • We had over 100 exhibitors at the expo showcasing everything from established companies, research groups and exciting startups.
