CMR helps companies in Hordaland with research-based innovation
CMR has won a contract with Hordaland county council as competence broker. The contract is part of the Research-based Regional Innovation (FORREGION) scheme.
The FORREGION programme rests on three pilars:
Mobilising: We aim to stimulate more companies to use research in their innovation work. We are funding a number of activities, of which competence brokering (kompetansemegling) is one.
Capacity: This part is about building research capacity relevant for industry in the regions.
Dialogue: This part is about facilitating dialogue between the research community in innovation research and practitioners.
