Innovation, Industry and Regional Development


It looks like a maritime cluster will be established in the north after 60 participants from the maritime industry gathered in Narvik on September 15.


A new collaboration agreement between the Northern Arctic Federal University (NArFU) and Norut will be signed this week during the Norwegian Days in Arkhangelsk.

What effects do climate changes have on people and society in the north, and how can we adapt to the changes and take suitable measures?

What significance does gender have in innovation systems and innovation processes?

Norut presents new figures connected with the economic impact of fishing tourism in Norway – 2400 boats, 434 resorts and a sleeping capacity of 15,000 guests.

Pupils in Troms are choosing science subjects. The initiative to promote science subjects has probably had a positive effect, according to Norut’s evaluation.

Arctic Frontiers

More than 700 scientists, business people and politicians are gathering at Arctic Frontiers in Tromsø from January 24-29. Norut is one of the conference organisers.

There is growing optimism, but an extremely high level of uncertainty. That sums up the general economic outlook in Northern Norway.
