Norwegian shipping is characterised by its strong ability and willingness to innovate and create value. This has helped establish Norway’s position as a leading maritime nation. In modern times, Norway has exerted a clear influence on almost all substantial maritime innovations. At the same time it would be naïve to think that this ability to innovate is unique and cannot be emulated by others. To retain our leading edge we need to invest in innovation and building competence.
Our task is to help enable our members to be at the forefront of developing and applying new innovations. We work to ensure that Norwegian authorities prioritise research, development and innovation on topics of importance to our members.
