Donation for Regional Innovation Research Project

Centre for Innovation Research at the University of Stavanger and the International Research Institute of Stavanger (IRIS) will study restructuring challenges in the region, with particular emphasis on the Forus Næringspark (Industry Park)

The aim of this project is to find answers on how the region and Forus Industry Park can be a driver for innovation and change.

Head of the Center for Innovation Research, Professor Ragnar Tveterås is very pleased with the donations from both private and public sectors that makes this research project possible. The project is funded with almost 5 MNOK from Forus Industrial Park, Sparebanken Vest, Base Property and Rogaland County Council. 

- The project will give us more knowledge about important drivers besides the petroleum industry that will provide guidelines for future developments. We will examine what is unique for the Forus Industry park if we compare with commercial areas elsewhere and in other cities. Which competitive advantage should the region emphasizing nationally and internationally?
