GCE NODE, Eyde Cluster and NHO Agder had their annual meeting with Agder’s Members of Parliament in Oslo Wednesday.

“We are very glad to meet local MPs to update and be updated on issues that are important for Agder as a region and the companies we represent,” says Anne-Grete Ellingsen, CEO at GCE NODE.

It has become a tradition for Agder’s two main industrial clusters and NHO Agder to meet the region’s top national politicians.

Topics for this year’s meeting included infrastructure, such as roads, railroads, harbors and toll on transportation, but also projects such as Future Robotics and Mechatronics Innovation Lab and research programs, such as SFI Offshore Mechatronics.

“I would like to express our gratitude to Åse Michaelsen, who is a fantastic coordinator and organizer of these meetings. And to all Agder representatives, who by working together, are increasingly successful in achieving great things for Agder,” says Ellingsen.
