Turning innovation into value

With a focus on technology, our cluster serves as a catalyst for driving progress, fostering partnerships, and strengthening Norway's position within the green transition.

We strengthen the global competitiveness of the local and national industry

A global restructuring is currently underway, focusing on increasing sustainability, competence, economic efficiency, and resource optimization. This transformative process, often referred to as "the green transition," will bring significant changes to our lifestyles and the development of products, technology, and industries. These changes involve complex and wide-ranging topics that demand continuous development, active engagement, unwavering commitment, and collaboration across various sectors. In order to thrive and outperform in the global marketplace, it is essential to prioritize strategic investment areas through impactful community initiatives.

Working alongside industrial partners, the Kongsberg Technology Cluster actively explores emerging technologies, complex systems, cultivates expertise, and fosters knowledge sharing. By doing so, we facilitate the adoption of innovations within our community, empowering all stakeholders to leverage the transformative potential of these advancements.

As a national competence cluster, Kongsberg Technology Cluster comprises multiple partners from diverse industries across Norway. Our primary objective is to serve as a valuable cluster, actively contributing to the enhancement of the industry's global competitiveness.
