FORNY2020 aims at creating value and benefits for society from research results. This is done by funding the Norwegian technology transfer offices (TTOs) and projects in need of proof-of-concept.
The Research Council of Norway and the Norwegian Cancer Society are joining forces to ensure that results from Norwegian cancer research make it from the laboratory to the market more quickly – for the benefit of the patients.
A new evaluation report concludes that the universities’ Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) have become more professional and expanded their capacity. At the same time the report warns there is great potential value that will remain unrealised if Norway’s universities and university colleges do not do more to strengthen the culture for commercialisation.
The Research Council of Norway has launched a new initiative on research for research and innovation policy (FORINNPOL). The initiative will span a period of eight years, with an estimated annual budget of just under NOK 20 million.
