In Norway the SPARK program has been established by UiO:Life Science which is the largest strategic interdisciplinary initiative at the University of Oslo. In 2024 Norway’s largest university building will be completed at the university. The Norwegian Government invests about one billion dollars in the building and expects increased value creation and a strengthened Norwegian health industry in return. In the government’s new white paper on health industry that was launched 5 April, the life science building and the government’s investments in life sciences are highlighted and the SPARK Norway program even has its own fact box.
