Who owns and runs Oslo Science Park?

Oslo Science Park is operated by Oslotech AS, which in turn is owned by the University of Oslo, the City of Oslo, and SIVA, as well as several smaller shareholders. Oslotech aims to contribute to societal value creation by providing meeting places and infrastructure that foster growth and innovation. The company does not pay dividends to the owners, and all profits from the real estate operations are reinvested in activities, maintenance, and expansions.

Oslo Science Park as a test arena

Oslo Science Park is a sandbox for entrepreneurs and researchers where curiosity and the joy of creation take center stage. Whether you want to conduct experiments, seek feedback on a user survey, or have a prototype you want to user-test, Oslo Science Park can be a potential venue to carry out your project.

Environment & Sustainability

We are committed to making sustainable choices in all aspects of our operations, such as heating, waste management, transportation, and maintenance. All suppliers are required to have a clear environmental profile and demonstrate their environmental efforts. In Oslo Science Park, tenants can easily scale their office spaces, thereby preventing resource-intensive renovations and relocation processes. We also facilitate the reuse of furniture and equipment and initiate both small and large environmental and sustainability projects.

Diversity & Inclusion.

Oslo Science Park aims to be a diverse, equal, and inclusive environment where everyone feels respected and included, regardless of factors such as race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, ability, religion, nationality, and economic status. We continuously strive to make our spaces accessible to people with disabilities and ensure that our physical spaces, technology, and services are inclusive and accommodating.

The history of Oslo Science Park

Forskningsparken was officially opened in 1989. The initiative came from the newly established Innovasjonssenteret A/S, supported by the University of Oslo, the City of Oslo, research institutions in the Oslo region, and 11 industrial companies. The initiative for a science park brought together multiple stakeholders from industry, business, and research, jointly elevating the idea into a larger project. Since then, Oslo Science Park has become a leading center for growth, innovation, and development.
