Openlab proud partner of this year’s Gather conference


September 12-14, it is time for this year’s major innovation conference, Gather. This year Openlab participates as an academic partner to the conference which is made up of two busy days with over 50 speakers, 15 seminars, 10+ innovation labs and over 1600 visitors.

At Gather’s Open Stage, Openlab will host two sessions on Thursday the 12th and Friday the 13th. Matlaboratoriet’s Per Styregård will moderate a conversation about food and sustainability in the future Meatpacking District of Stockholm, alongside entrepreneurs, experts and some of the city’s main foodies on stage. Openlab’s innovation manager Sara Araya will facilitate a panel conversation on what it takes to accelerate the innovation of digital public services and reach the Global Sustainability Goals. Both panelists and the audience will be able to participate through Openlab’s digital platform Develop Your City. More info about these sessions will be updated shortly.

Gather is an innovation conference and a festival for business, public sector, culture, tech and academia to meet and creating real change. Gather is held in 2019 in the Meatpacking district on Stockholm, between 12-14 September.

The ambition of Openlab’s participation is to anchor Gather’s approach of gathering cultures and organisations in creative collaboration, in some of the most burning challenges for the Stockholm region.
