New collaboration agreement with Innovation Norway and SIVA

The agreement helps to ensure that the results of industry-oriented research are used to benefit society and to promote easy access for Norwegian companies to integrated funding schemes for research and innovation activities.

Close cooperation between the industry-oriented funding agencies within the research and innovation system is essential to providing effective, targeted forms of funding and ensuring that research results are put to good use. This is the basis for the collaboration agreement recently signed by the heads of the Research Council of Norway, Innovation Norway and the Industrial Development Corporation of Norway (SIVA). The agreement will run through 2018. The first collaboration agreement between the parties was signed in 2007.

“We are pleased to continue our close cooperation with Innovation Norway and SIVA,” says Director General of the Research Council Arvid Hallén. “Through effective coordination and task distribution among ourselves, we will simplify the funding schemes available to trade and industry, make sure that research results reach relevant users and facilitate value creation based on the acquired knowledge.”
