OIW Nordic Edtech Humanitarian Aid Challenge – Workshop

27. sep 2017 | SALT, Langhuset

How can partnerships between humanitarian organisations and the Nordic Edtech Industry ensure quality learning is made available for people living in conflict areas and crisis?
Join us! We are looking for educators, designers, students, refugees and Nordic edtech companies to solve specific, global challenges from the field of education and learning in crisis, presented by Save the Children and UNICEF.


Teams will be formed with edtech companies and work on solutions – existing, adapted or new. Representatives from the humanitarian sector will be your mentors. Each team is expected to present their ideas for solutions. We will also provide information on how to bring forward innovative ideas and partnerships that can provide solutions to humanitarian challenges, including funding and support from Innovation Norway.
