Description

So You Think You Can Work?
Tomorrow's Workplace – New Moves for Students and Companies

The Innovation Effect is proud to be participating at Oslo Innovation Week for the fourth time. This year, we will set the spotlight on studies versus work. Join us for an interactive session at MESH and take part in the discussion! Do you think you can work in tomorrow's workplace?

The needs and demands of the workplace are in constant change and the expectations of young professionals are increasing. In addition to requiring strong interpersonal skills and an innovative mindset, companies state that work-related experience is an essential factor when recruiting recent graduates. Meanwhile, students complain about the lack of school-driven internships and sufficient opportunities to practice their academic knowledge. Are the Universities and Colleges failing to do their job; to prepare students for work? Are the companies expecting too much for entry-level employment? Or are the students oblivious to their own responsibility for gaining the skills and experience needed to success in tomorrow’s workplace? We will have an exciting and interactive panel talk with participants from the student body, employers and academia. Join us in discussing how to accommodate the change in expectations of young professionals!

We will showcase the benefits of connecting young creative minds with established companies by presenting the results of our latest projects. Over the last months, we have worked together with Equinor and a highly skilled interdisciplinary student team to explore new and sustainable solutions. Come and hear the exciting learnings from this innovative project and the engaging stories from Equinor's Strategy and Innovation Manager and our young talent speakers.

The event is free, but you need to sign up in advance. Get your tickets by following the green "Register" button at the top.

Please arrive early to join us for an interactive warm-up with fun activities! Registration at the event from 12.20 to no later than 12.45.
