Oslo Science Park is located in an area with immense resources. The University of Oslo, the university hospitals and research institutes are knowledge hubs, all representing possible solutions to future challenges for both Norway and the world. Since its inception 30 years ago, the Park has played an important role here. It has been a meeting place for business and research, a workplace for knowledge-based businesses, and a start-up and scale-up arena for new entrepreneurial companies paving way for Norway’s future.
Economic results is achieved in dynamic communities, with a wide range of people, ideas and resources. The Oslo Science Park was designed and established to be a melting pot. Do you consider joining the community?
Infrastructure for innovation
The Oslo Science Park is an arena for conferences, clusters and professional networks, and a meeting place for the established business sector, the research communities, capital and talents. First Friday Coffee, Food for Thought, Better Together and Impact Breakfast are some of the popular events here.
At present, some 300 companies and over 3 000 people work at the Oslo Science Park. Many of the companies have global ambitions in ICT, biotechnology, health and medical technology, energy and the environment. To allow companies to focus on their core activities, our memberships include a range of services, like cleaning, a reception, post, cafeterias, meeting rooms, a day care centre, fitness centre, haircut, dry cleaning and health care services.
Many vibrant communities and clusters are located here, like Norway Health Tech, the health incubator Aleap, the lab-incubator for biotech startups: ShareLab and StartupLab with 80+ tech startups.
During the past 30 years, the Oslo Science Park has grown into a 57 000 sq.m. site, housing offices, laboratories, a conference centre and a car park.

Value creation over profit
Oslotech AS runs Forskningsparken in Oslo as a non-profit. Oslotech has prominent and reputable owners such as the University of Oslo, Oslo Municipality, and SIVA who want us to contribute towards the business community. Our purpose is to create value in society by offering a meeting arena and infrastructure that promotes growth and innovation. Our goal is to contribute towards the commercialization of research and generating more jobs coming out of these knowledge hubs. Current real estate profits are reinvested, either in activities that support our goals (such as grants for incubators and contributions to networking arenas) or back into the buildings through upgrades.
In the heart of Oslo Science City - Norway's first innovation district
Oslo Science City will extend from Majorstuen and Marienlyst to Blindern, Gaustad, and Radiumhospitalet. Here, knowledge hubs will work more closely with the business community and the public sector to contribute to future solutions. In the middle of the innovation district lies Oslo Science Park, one of the few areas with such space for all wishing to establish themselves in the area.
Currently based here are StartupLab, considered by many to be one of Europe’s leading tech incubators, as well as the country's leading Health networks Norway Health Tech and Aleap. We are also in full swing setting foundations to support the Life Sciences and Bioeconomics in ShareLab and The Life Science Cluster, in anticipation of the university’s new Life Sciences building, coming in 2024.
