NODE’s Cluster Development Program shifts focus to research, development and innovation in the first half of 2016.

“There has never been a better time for good ideas. Research, development and innovation is even more important now than before”, says Program Manager Bjørn Saltermark.

RD&I sessions are held in cooperation with Innovation Norway and the Research Council of Norway. They include lectures on intellectual property right, corporate social responsibility, financing and the ecosystem for innovation.

An innovation management course, presented by the University of Agder in cooperation with local entrepreneurs and NODE companies, is pending funding.

NODE’s Cluster Development Program consists of three parts: Supply chain management (Fall, 2015), RD&I (Spring, 2016) and Internationalization (Fall, 2016).
