Research and education are important elements of Norway’s cooperation with the EU. Through the EEA Agreement, Norway participates in the EU’s education programme Erasmus+ and the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020.

Norway’s contributions to the major EU programmes for research, innovation and education will total around EUR 2.7 billion in the period 2014–20.

Investments in these areas will help to secure the basis for competitiveness and employment in the future. Norway and the EU cannot compete on the basis of labour costs; rather, they need to compete on the basis of innovation and knowledge.

World-leading research forms the foundation for tomorrow’s jobs, technologies and welfare. Increasing the knowledge content in products, services and processes gives a competitive advantage and increases productivity.

Cross-border mobility and cooperation help to raise the quality of education and research, and make an important contribution to the competitiveness of our businesses.
