On August 18th 2016, Innovation Norway organised a workshop in Oslo for Norwegian companies and other stakeholders that are involved in Norway Grants-projects.

The event was very useful because Innovation Norway was able to 

  • gather a lot of recommendations for improvement,
  • convey success factors of the work of the Norway Grants team to owners and clients
  • collect many valuable ideas to help us promote Norway Grants to a wider Norwegian business audience.

There was valuable input from stakeholders like Tomra, Rainpower, NIBIO/Bioforsk, Norges Vel - you find all the presentations below. Check them out to learn about business opportunities for Norwegian companies through engagement in norwaygrants-projects as partners (in Norwegian only).

"We are happy that also number of key stakeholders from our public owners and clients such as the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation, and the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries were present", said Eli Bleie Munkelien, director of the Business Partnerships department at Innovation Norway.
