New Norwegian Website on Research Policy

A new website on Norwegian research policy was launched on 25 April 2007. presents news and events concerning Norwegian research and innovation policy and provides background information on policy development in this field.
FORINN is a collaboration between The Norwegian research Council, Innovation Norway and SIVA – The Industrial Development Corporation of Norway. The website will present updated information on research; innovation and knowledge policy; relevant conferences, meetings and seminars; the departmental processes that pave the way for these policy areas as well as similar processes in different councils and special interest organizations.

The target groups are employees in public administration, research and analysis institutions and -institutes, politicians and the media. is organized in two sections: one is a collection of articles and news, the other is a catalogue of relevant webpages.

The website is still a “work in progress”, according to Per Kroch at The Norwegian Research Council. Research institutions, special interest organizations and public institutions are thus invited to inform FORINN’s editorial office about relevant topics.
