We turn research and knowledge into products and services that benefit society
Research and knowledge are the keys to addressing global challenges relating to health, climate and the environment. Highly capable researchers and clinicians from larger parts Norway report their ideas and discoveries to us. We develop and manage these ideas, and proceed with the ones that can be transformed into products that benefit society.
We have started businesses that develop better cancer therapies, combat antibiotic resistance and identify security breaches in complex IT systems. Two-thirds of our businesses and licences are in the field of life science, since the scientific community we represent is particularly strong in that field.
Another important area for us is to administer agreements on clinical trials on behalf of the hospitals in our region and in the northern part of Norway. We make active endeavours to get more international companies to carry out their clinical trials in Norway. That way, more innovative treatment can benefit more patients in Norway.
