Key to innovation

Northern Knowledge works on the optimum utilisation of knowledge. We make knowledge from the northern knowledge institutions accessible and create connections between researchers, companies, governments, interest groups and knowledge clusters. In doing so, we want to maximise the value of science for society. Because knowledge is the key to innovation.
