Christie Conference 2024

April 23 @ 08:00 - 17:00

The Christie Conference aims to be UiB’s key forum connecting research, politics, administration, culture, society, and business. Held annually in late April at the University Aula, it’s named after Wilhelm Frimann Koren Christie, founder of Bergen Museum, a prominent political figure, and a bridge between the museum and societal stakeholders. On Tuesday, April 23rd, the Christie Conference 2024 takes place at the University Aula.

This year, our focus turns to Europe, asking: What will Europe look like in 10 years, and how can Bergen and Norway influence its development?

Future of Europe – What Opportunities Lie Ahead?

Europe is a vital part of our identity, offering some of the best in art, culture, research, and humanism. Since the Second World War, and particularly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, cooperation, shared institutions, and efforts toward peaceful coexistence have made significant progress. Geopolitical changes, such as the pandemic, rising nationalism, deglobalization, and the conflict in Ukraine, have altered this trajectory. Norway now faces a different Europe than it did just five years ago.

At the Christie Conference, we look forward and discuss:

Does Europe possess the tools needed to tackle future challenges? What role does Norway play as an energy supplier, an industrial nation, and in security policy? How can Bergen and Norway contribute to the future of Europe?

We invite you to engaging discussions among key figures in research, society, business, and culture.

The final program and registration will be available in February, but mark your calendars for April 23, 2024.
