Max Schrems will be visiting Norway and will hold a lecture in Hamar.

Max Schrems is the founder of NOYB – European Center for Digital Rights. He is known for having fought Facebook, Google, and other Silicon heavyweights – and having won. Worried about how the U.S. handled personal data, he challenged the established " Safe Habour" agreement that let data be easily swapped between European and US technology companies. Based on Schrems' case, the EU overturned the agreement in 2015. In 2017, Forbes added him to their list of the 30 most influential people under 30 in Europe.  In 2019, he brought ‘ Schrems 2’ to Europe’s highest court, complaining about the use of standard contract clauses used by Facebook to protect its data transfers under EU privacy law.
