Negotiations on the national budget ended without any funding for the Mechatronics Innovation Lab.

The Christian Democrats (KrF), said funding for the lab would be part of the negotiations with The Conservative Party and The Progress Party on the national budget. As negotiations ended Friday morning, Kjell Ingolf Ropstad (KrF) told that they had not found money for the lab.

– Unfortunately not. We will continue to promote funding for the lab together with other representatives from Agder, said Robstad.
