Nordic Innovation aims to make the Nordics a pioneering region for sustainable growth and works to promote entrepreneurship, innovation and competitiveness in Nordic businesses.

We support programs and projects which contribute in fulfilling the goals of the Nordic Co-operation Program for Innovation and Business Policy 2018–2021, which is decided by the Nordic Ministers for Business and Innovation.

Building on strongholds identified by the national innovation and trade promotion organizations and where the Nordic countries have complementary advantages, Nordic Innovation has developed three comprehensive programs which are our main priorities for the period 2018–2021:

Nordic Smart Mobility and Connectivity

Nordic Sustainable Business Transformation

Health, Demography and Quality of Life

Nordic Innovation is implementing the Nordic prime ministers' 2030 vision for the Nordic cooperation. The vision is to be the world’s most sustainable and integrated region, and to integrate the 17 sustainable development goals with emphasis on making the Nordics a carbon neutral region.

Our office is situated in Oslo, Norway, with 22 highly qualified employees from all the Nordic countries and with expertise from different business areas and industries.

Nordic Innovation’s annual budget is approximately NOK 90 million. The office is co-located with NordForsk and Nordic Energy Research, also organisations under the Nordic Council of Ministers.
