Norway

A quick update on our work with Norway in Industrial Biotechnology and Biorefining. We've been discussing opportunities for mutual activity. The starting point is some consultancy work to scope out the synergies and opportunities - we've selected the winning proposal and the Biosciences KTN will make this public knowledge soon.

 

We have worked together on a memorandum of understanding between Innovation Norway and the Technology Strategy Board. This outlines some of the activites we might undertake together such as joint funded projects, networking events.


Interestingly, its been reported (http://euobserver.com/?aid=31641) that there is increasing strategic interest in the High North for energy and trade reasons. In fact, the UK's Prime Minister David Cameron will this week host a meeting of Nordic and Baltic state leaders on the topic. As part of this meeting, the MOU with Norway on Industrial Biotechnology may also be discussed.
