ÅKP is helping to create the jobs of the future in an attractive region to live and work in.
ÅKP is a regional hub for innovation, business development and social development. Among other things, it facilitates one of Norway's most complete incubator systems, the cluster programmes Blue Maritime Cluster – Global Centre of Expertise, Blue Legasea and Norwegian Rooms, as well as several other national and international projects.
Today, Møre og Romsdal county is host to world-leading marine-based business clusters. Much of ÅKP's activity is related to these important industries, but ÅKP is at the same time also making active endeavours to transfer knowledge and experience about innovation processes, organisation and culture to other business sectors and public undertakings. The aim is to stimulate and develop the foundation for future value creation in the region.
