The Christie Conference

The Christie conference aims to be the most important regional venue for interaction between academia and the University's surroundings.

The Christie Conference takes its name from Wilhelm Frimann Koren Christie (1778-1849). He was the founder of the Bergen Museum, and a leading political figure who was central to the construction of the national identity in 1814. Christie was a unique bridge between the museum and various actors in politics and society, both regionally and nationally.

The Christie Conference aims to be the most important regional venue for interaction between academia and the University's surroundings. Scientists, politicians, business leaders and key people within the culture, society and the public sector will face each other to discuss the specific advantages of the region.
