Kongsberg Cluster

competence cluster

To achieve a global industry transformation with increased sustainability, we need to focus on competence, funding, and resource efficiency. This is often referred to as the “green shift,” and will lead to major changes in the way we live and the way we produce as well as develop our products, technology, and industry. This shift brings up large and complex matters that requires development, dedicated participation, commitment, and interaction across industries. To succeed in this global competition, it is crucial for our industry to highlight valuable industry projects in cooperation.

Together with our industry partners, the Kongsberg Cluster focuses on new technology, complex systems, building new competence, and sharing experiences. By working together, it is easier to succeed and adopt new technologies.

The Kongsberg Cluster is a national competence cluster consisting of a wide range of partners from several industries in Norway. Our goal is to be a valuable cluster that support the industry in strengthening their global competitiveness.

Cooperation and innovation

Together with our members, we collaborate on innovation projects to explore new business opportunities and to develop and implement new technology that will shape our future and strengthen our role in the green shift. The cluster has decades of tradition for cooperation and innovation and focuses on activities that are of high national and international importance.

Since June 2021, the Kongsberg Cluster have been certified at the highest level in EU, with the gold label from the European Commission. Our mission is to be the driving force for strengthening the competitiveness of our cluster members through faster innovation, smart use of new technology and a strong sharing culture.
