  • Establish an overview of available competence, equipment and facilities at Haukeland University Hospital and University of Bergen
  • Set up academic meetings where researchers from the University of Bergen, Haukeland University Hospital and representatives of relevant industries can exchange updated knowledge on selected topics
  • Establish a good process for identifying new project opportunities
  • Give companies an opportunity to present their own research, innovation activities and projects in the pipeline, and thereby facilitate a flow of information about planned studies
  • Coordinate with national and international networks
  • Promote activities and participants in Biomedical Network
  • Facilitate for coordination and collaboration on projects that require substantial research, including EU programs

Actors that will contribute to the network

  • Clinical academic environments
