Humphrey School will host discussion exploring ties between Norway and Minnesota.
Torger Reve, international expert on economic competitiveness, will present his research on Norwegian Global Knowledge Hubs: superclusters of knowledge-based industrial development. He will explain how nations, regions and cities must now compete to be the most attractive locations for knowledge-intensive industries. Following the presentation, a panel of Minnesotan experts will discuss the implications of knowledge hubs for Minnesota's economic competitiveness. The audience will also be asked to join the discussion during a question and answer session with Torger and the Minnesota panel.
