France and Norway are both countries where Digital transformation and A.I. has a high priority on the political agenda. Following the success of the past A.I. workshops and events organized by the Team Norway in 2018 and 2019, we decided to go further on this topic and organize with our partners a follow up in Toulouse in 2019. The cities and Oslo and Toulouse signed and MoU to develop innovative cooperation and we believe that such an event will contribute to develop new industrial, scientific and commercial cooperation.

Why Toulouse?
Toulouse is 1st French metropolis for economic growth, demographic evolution, job creation and investment in R&D.
