Together we create green competitiveness

The Norwegian Center for Circular Economy is an Arena cluster in the cluster program of Norwegian Innovation Clusters.

The cluster works with the opportunities that lie in further developing the circular economy in practice for and between businesses. Development of new business areas and utilization of waste products or residual products are tasks the center works with. The combination of a strong professional environment and collaboration with the most important research environments in Norway and abroad, gives users of the center great opportunity to develop their own business with changed/new products, and possible new business areas based on the green shift and the circular economy.

The Norwegian Centre of Circular Economy is for companies that, through projects based on the green shift, create innovation and profitability.


This is the basis for the centre's commitment to innovation. The centre works with the development of residual products and other types of recyclable products to be able to be used as a replacement for more resource-intensive raw materials/products. This can result in new products being created. The process will also give its assessment of how useful a new development is and how a new development can be utilized.

The interaction between the advisory service and the test laboratory will be able to provide the necessary basis for increased innovation.
