NORSI & Research Council Collaboration: NORSI and the Research Council of Norway organized on 12 December 2019 a seminar on economic development and innovation for regional policy makers.  The Research Council through their Programme on Regional Research-based Innovation (FORREGION) supported the seminar.

Experience based knowledge sharing – researchers and municipal county advisors: An engaged audience of about 20 representatives from various “fylkeskommuner” attended and engaged in academic discussions in a management setting.  The participants emphasized that there is a strong need for more research dissemination, and knowledge and experience sharing between various regional areas. The current merging of “fylkeskommuner” requires increased focus on regional responsible and sustainable innovation. Presentations focused on regional innovation system, regional restructuring and path development, regional value creation and responsible and sustainable innovation.

Presenter & organizers: Anne Solheim, Research Council set the stage and Beniamino Callegari introduced NORSI and the upcoming NORSI book to be published in 2021. NORSI presenters were Arne Isaksen, UiA; Håkon Endresen Normann, UiO-TIK; Nhien Nguyen, Nordland Research Institute/NTNU; Are Jensen, Nordland Research Institute and Håkon Finne, SINTEF Digital.
