The Innovation Performance of the Norwegian Offshore Industry: A report for the Norwegian Oil and Gas Association
MetadataShow full item record
- Research Reports 
This report particularly considers the supplier (upside) part of the offshore oil & gas industry. It appears to be as innovative as telecommunication and pharmaceutical (traditional high-tech) industries in Norway but, in addition, it is part of the cluster with most developed knowledge commons and dynamics in the country, which suggests a significant innovation potential. Our analysis suggests a number of corporate and industry policies that can help turn that potential into innovation output. The report should not be viewed in isolation. It is a follow-up of our earlier study “Offshore Oil & Gas as Industrial Driver” (2013), focusing more on the productivity development in the offshore oil & gas supplier industry, and a larger national-level research project “Knowledge-based Norway” (2012) by Torger Reve and Amir Sasson as the theoretical and empirical background.
