Regional representatives

The Research Council has appointed thirteen regional representatives, located at the district offices of Innovation Norway. They work to promote research and development with regional players.

The regional representatives provide regional players with information and advice about the Research Council's industry-oriented measures, facilitate cooperation between companies and R&D institutions and highlight activities and R&D results relevant to regional stakeholders.

They also make sure that R&D perspectives are included in regional development plans and in the contact between regional governing bodies and trade and industry.
