4. apr.: Optimize the future

Join artists and scientists for an evening of exploration and discussion, where we will debate how to optimize the future!

Thursday April 4, 18:00.

The golden age of the oil economy is coming to an end, while bioeconomy emerges as an alternative for Norway’s economic, social and environmental future. Salmon, cod, microbes, enzymes and other living systems are ‘optimized’ through digital modelling towards innovative market products.

But is such optimization actually optimal? Optimal for whom? What does bioeconomy actually mean? Is it a good alternative?


  • Create and taste a new national dish for Norway based on your values and ideas for the future
  • Try your hand at bioprospecting and experience a proposal for a new National flag
  • Explore maps that radically re-imagine Norway and the world
  • Participate in a live talk show and join the discussion about Norway’s future bioeconomy.
