NBAS warmly welcomes you to the inaugural Singapore Norway Innovation Conference (SNIC) on 29 Sept 2020 (moved from 5 March, due to the corona situation)!

“Continuous innovation is of critical importance for both established Singaporean and Norwegian businesses and start-ups”, says Leonard Stornes, President of NBAS, who is hosting SNIC in partnership with the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Singapore and Innovation Norway.

This year’s edition of SNIC aims to show the vast opportunities for innovation provided by digital transformation. We will also explore the challenges and risks of new technologies, like cyber security and the changing legal operational environment.
