Image: UiO. This year, the programme consisted of more than events and stands. The University of Oslo participated with 25 events on board the veteran ship MS Sunnhordland, on topics ranging from climate and urban planning to loneliness and dental health. ARENAs first event was a discussion on the background for Brexit and what consequences the UKs withdrawal will have for stakeholders in the Norwegian business and research sectors.

She emphasised, however, that the Norwegian government has negotiated transitional arrangements and that NHO is working hard to prepare Norwegian businesses in case of a no-deal Brexit. Preparations can also be made in the research sector.
