The aim of Digital Life Norway is to "create economic, societal, and environmental value". What is of value? How do we value it? How may value be created and sustained by the biotechnology of the future? Lectures, conversations, and walks in Jotunheimen will provide us with perspective on current understandings of work, value, innovation, and biotechnology.

The planned route is Leirvassbu - Olavsbu - Skogadalsbø - Turtagrø, but this may be subject to change.

What is a walkshop?

Read about the walkshop approach here: Wickson, Strand, & Kjølberg (2015) The Walkshop Approach to Science and Technology Ethics, Sci Eng Ethics

There is a limited amount of places. Some places will be distributed after the early bird registration deadline, and some after the final deadline. We will take care of all practicalities related to accommodation and travel to/from Jotunheimen. The mountain cabins may feel primitive to some standards, and you must be prepared to share bedrooms. If you are a member of the research school, we cover all your expenses (travelling, accommodation, food).

Participants must be prepared to walk for several kilometers in mountainous terrain several days in a row (the stretches varies between 10-20 km), and you must carry your own clothes and equipment. We will provide a pack list, preparation reading material, and a more detailed route description after confirmation of participation.
