Over the last number of years, humanitarian innovation has become a key focus for donors, policymakers and humanitarian actors. At the same time innovation is also a central objective of a host of Norwegian institutions, including PRIO, Innovasjon Norge/NOREPS, the Norwegian Research Council and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. However, so far, there has been little dialogue between the various actors. The first half of this seminar brings together Norwegian humanitarian organizations, academia, government organizations and the private sector to discuss needs and possibilities in humanitarian action. The second part of the seminar brings together Norwegian-based academics interested in humanitarian innovation.

Participants are welcome to attend either only the morning session or the full day. Please inform us upon registration whether you will only attend the first session or both sessions.
