Oslo Region European Office

The Oslo Region European Office is a member organisation serving 17 members; counties, municipalities and universities in the capital region of Norway. Our mission is to create and develop new opportunities for our members by increasing knowledge, participation and visibility in European processes. We focus our work on areas related to the green transition (Energy, Climate, Circular Economy, Mobility and Bioeconomy) and inclusive societies (Health, Culture, Education, Youth, Social Inclusion). On behalf of our members, we are interested in EU funding for projects related to several specific challenges in the above-mentioned areas. The Oslo Region European Office does not take part directly in projects with EU funding, but plays a supportive role for our members by providing a platform for contact and bringing ideas to our members from the European policy-making cycle.
