About Norwegian health tech

Artificial Intelligence

Norway has one of the strongest and most admired health-related personal data registries and is a unique location for development of machine learning and artificial intelligence applications for the healthcare sector.

Rapid Growth and solid revenues

Value creation in the Norwegian life science industry doubled over ten years, reaching 50 billion NOK in 2014, and continues to grow rapidly. Seven of ten companies have launched new products during the last three years, and report 30% percent of revenues from these products.

Massive R&D spend

Norwegian technology and capital – traditionally channeled into the oil and gas industry – is increasingly seeking opportunities in the fast-growing life science sector. Norway’s annual spending on R&D in healthcare exceeds 1 billion euro.
