Marketing Norway to the world for more than 50 years

Business Region Oslo
The capital region of Norway is one of the most prospering regions of Europe, combining a high quality of life with a high level of productivity. The region consists of Oslo, the capital of Norway, and the surrounding county of Akershus. More than one million people live in the region which also serves a gateway to the rest of Norway and the Nordic countries.


Much of the innovation in Norway is taking place in the Oslo region. Although Norway is a country that is also characterized by an abundance of natural resources, the Oslo region is primarily the foothold of a number of advanced services and knowledge-intensive industries of world class, among them the maritime sector, energy and the environment, ICT, life sciences and culture and entertainment.
 
Many of these industries also have strong links to the scientific communities of the Oslo region, like the University of Oslo and Oslo Innovation Center, the latter aims to be one of the leading centres in Europe for innovation and industrial development by commercializing ideas and results from research environments and currently houses more than 140 companies. These kinds of industries attract skilled professionals from all over Norway, the Nordic countries, Europe and increasingly an even more diverse international clientele that have discovered the unique qualities, business opportunities and high standard of living in our region.
 
In effect, the Oslo region provides an excellent platform for doing business. I hope you will draw inspiration from this magazine and maybe you will want to join us.
