Invitation to Nor-Fishing Student Camp

Calling all enthusiasts eager to dive into sustainable utilization of foods from the ocean. From August 19th to August 22nd, the stage is set for the Nor-Fishing Student Camp. Here, 20 lucky students get the opportunity to visit the exhibition show themselves to the industry, and compete for prize money through an innovation camp.

Each student registers individually. The organizer then forms groups of approx. 5 students from different educational institutions and fields of study who will work together from Monday evening to Wednesday evening. All groups will have access to mentors from the industry. During the Student Day on Thursday August 22nd, the groups will pitch their ideas for a jury. The jury will then pick out a winning group, which will be announced at the exhibition. The main prize is a group cheque worth NOK 10.000. In addition, all students participating in the Nor-Fishing Student Camp get access to the fair incl. lunch all days, and an own space for group work at the heart of the venue where visitors can come and interact.

Are you curious about this high technology sector that has been at the heart of Norwegian society for many centuries? Will it be possible to support the ambition to sustainably harvest more food from the oceans? And are you eager to share your ideas with students from other fields and universities? During the Student Camp, you will also learn more about how to work with complex, industry related issues, and be guided by industry mentors.

Participation does not require any detailed knowledge about the field, but interest, commitment, and willingness to cooperate. You will be asked to contribute with your own knowledge and creativeness.

The overall theme is: More food from the Oceans
