KASK:VIE is a cooperative project consisting of partners from Norway and Denmark. This project’s partners include players from business clusters, universities and organisations that provide support to businesses. The University of Aalborg is the lead partner, and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB) is the project owner.
The background of this project is the change in the competitive situation for knowledge and innovation with the advent of increased globalization. Through trans-border cooperation, the KASK:VIE project is meant to create development and growth in the region by working actively with method and tool development for knowledge collaboration, matchmaking and entrepreneurship. The three priority areas of the project are improving knowledge collaboration and matchmaking among researchers, research venues and businesses, increasing the number of knowledge-intensive businesses, and enhancing the interregional cooperation between two strong development networks in the Kattegat/Skagerrak region.
