On 8-9 October, NTNU and SINTEF hosted EU Strategy Event in Brussels. The outcome of this joint effort recently got published in the position paper «Norwegian stakeholder input on Orientations towards the first Strategic Plan for Horizon Europe».

More than 100 top-level representatives from Norwegian private and public sector together with representatives from the European Commission were brought together to discuss Norwegian contributions to and participation in European research and innovation.

The event was designed to create partnerships and joint priorities and to highlight the Norwegian expertise that can contribute to a sustainable Europe.

The thematic and scientific priorities for Horizon Europe were discussed. The debates centred on digitalization, energy, health, mobility and oceans.

The result is a document which presents the conclusions from two intense days of discussions on the challenges facing Europe, key research and innovation (R&I) orientations, as well as industrial opportunities and opportunities for society in general in the key areas above.
