Telenor sets up Digital Transformation Hub in Bergen with universities

Wednesday 14 August 2019 | 12:35 CET | News

Telenor said it is setting up the Digital Transformation Hub with Trondheim's Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the Norwegian School of Economics (NHH). The hub will be an open collaboration arena for digital innovation and will be located at NHH in Bergen. Telenor Group CEO Sigve Brekke said for a small country like Norway to assert itself internationally, top players need to share and collaborate.

Brekke said the collaboration will build a "national powerhouse" for digital transformation. The ambition is to facilitate accelerated and sustainable digitisation of Norwegian business and industries.

The Digital Transformation Hub will provide a physical space where companies, public institutions, entrepreneurs, students and academia can come together. The agreement between Telenor and NHH will specialise in research related to technology-driven innovation, digital transformation and behavioural economics, it said.

The Digital Transformation Hub will involve existing two research centres at NHH and engage a large number of researchers and PhD candidates. These are the recently established Digital Innovation for Growth centre, and NHH’s Centre for Experimental Research on Fairness, Inequality and Rationalisty (FAIR). FAIR will look at users’ experiences of justice and privacy when using digitally customised and personalised services.
