Close partnership with industry is an important factor in promoting clinical research in Norway. Our goal is to promote and improve the partnership between academia and industry. NorCRIN’s contacts facilitate and coordinate contact between the academic research environments at the Norwegian regional health authorities and health trusts, and industrial partners within a wide range of therapeutic areas.
You can contact the university hospitals by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org; your message will then automatically be forwarded to all six university hospitals in Norway. The university hospitals will respond individually to your enquiry.
You can also contact the university hospitals individually using the contact information below.

Norwegian regional health authorities and health trusts emphasise professionalism and transparency at all stages in collaboration with the industry.

Our regional contacts should always be involved as early as possible to ensure correct and complete administrative processing of the trial.
