From April 4th to 6th, 23 French corporates (Airbus, Total, Michelin, EDF, Orange and many more) went on a Learning Expedition to discover the innovation ecosystem in Norway.
The program, organized by Paris&Co in collaboration with the French-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce, started with the visit of Oslo’s main start-ups incubators MESH, Sentralen and StartupLab.
The second day was dedicated to the first French-Norwegian Open Innovation Forum.
In between insightful keynotes focusing on the Norwegian approach of design, customer experience and open innovation, a selection of 12 Norwegian startups had the opportunity to pitch to the French delegation. Viva Labs, a startup providing solutions for the Smart Home sector, won the competition and a one-month soft landing program in a Paris&Co incubator.
