Network

The world is facing complex challenges in a number of areas. To solve these we depend on collaborating with others to build knowledge and share information. This also applies across our national borders. The Mid-Norway European Office has close contact with other European regional offices in Brussels. We also take an active part in several European networks. Our presence in various networks constitutes a knowledge bank for our members and is a driver for closer links with Europe. Please get in touch to take part in our network of Norwegian and European actors.
