Consequently Western Norway will be able to create new industrial adventures
Leif K. Sandal and Gunnar S. Eskeland et al: We have a formidable opportunity to cooperate to take Western Norway forward.
Nearness between business and industry and the research institutions in Western Norway has large effect.
Furthermore, economic support programmes require, to an increasingly greater extent, that researchers cooperate with business and industry and civil service. Western Norway should take a bigger piece of this pie, because we have a unique advantage through competent industry and a broadly compound research and development sector, the authors write.
