3 3 Tromsø; characteristics of the region • Largest city in Northern Norway • Growth centre (population growth) in a stagnating region • Large share of public sector jobs; university, hospital, administration • Well-functioning labour market with a relatively low level of disabled people

4 Denne teksten redigeres i 'Topptekst og Bunntekst'4 The marine biotechnology industry in Tromsø • Marine biotech uses species from the sea to create medicine and other health care products • Based on analytical knowledge from Tromsø university (biotech, medicine) started about 30 years ago • Relatively few firms and jobs survived during the 30 years (15-20 firms, jobs)

5 Denne teksten redigeres i 'Topptekst og Bunntekst'5 Tromsø; type of RIS • The knowledge generation subsystem is relatively large; consisting of many knowledge institutions • Many policy tools have been used in order to boost the commercialisation of research results • Despite of this the knowledge exploiting subsystem is small and weak

6 Denne teksten redigeres i 'Topptekst og Bunntekst'6 Tromsø; possible research questions • Why has not all the public support (university, use of policy tools) resulted in a stronger marine biotech industry?

7 Denne teksten redigeres i 'Topptekst og Bunntekst'7 Raufoss; characteristics of the region • An old industrial region in transformation • Stability in population • Stagnation in employment and a labour marked that has produced a relatively high share of people with disability

8 Denne teksten redigeres i 'Topptekst og Bunntekst'8 The light weight material industry at Raufoss • The industry structure has transformed from a single, state owned company towards a diversified structure of companies • The common core is know how about light material and production methods

9 Denne teksten redigeres i 'Topptekst og Bunntekst'9 Raufoss; characteristics of the RIS • The industry is connected to the national knowledge generation system of light material and production technology • The industry is connected to global production networks

10 Denne teksten redigeres i 'Topptekst og Bunntekst'10 Raufoss; possible research questions • Is it possible to build a regional innovation system in a local industry incorporated in global production networks and national knowledge networks?

11 Denne teksten redigeres i 'Topptekst og Bunntekst'11 Oslo; characteristics of the region • The capital of Norway, and by far the largest city-region in the country • Faster population growth than the rest of Norway, but somewhat lower job growth in the period • High share of highly educated, and a high share of knowledge-intensive services (but a low share of high- tech manufacturing industry) • Well-functioning labour market with a relatively low level of disabled people

12 Denne teksten redigeres i 'Topptekst og Bunntekst'12 The cultural industries in Oslo • The cultural industries are a heterogeneous group of sectors • Oslo is the definite centre for the cultural industries in Norway, with about 30,000 jobs and a LQ of 2.1 • The cultural industries are characterised by many small firms and freelancers, organisation of much activity through projects, and a need for flexibility on the firm and network level • The concentration to Oslo is to a large extent explained by proximity to the largest marked and to potential clients, proximity to higher education institutions, and opportunities to find specialised knowledge to carry out projects

13 Denne teksten redigeres i 'Topptekst og Bunntekst'13 Oslo; type of RIS • The cultural industries in Oslo is ‘organisationally thick’; having national support organisation, higher education institutions, national branch organisations, local organisations that arrange specific events etc. • There seems to be a lot of small projects targeting specific parts of the cultural industries or focusing on specific aims • The regional policy targeting the cultural industries is in an initial phase striving to formulate its strategy and tools

14 Denne teksten redigeres i 'Topptekst og Bunntekst'14 Oslo; possible research questions • Is to possible or required to formulate a common strategy based on the RIS concept for such a fragmented industry? • What is the main mechanisms behind the development of different parts of the cultural industries?
