The vision of the Oslo Cancer Cluster Innovation Park is to create Europe’s leading environment for education, research and industry within oncology, while shortening the time it takes to develop new cancer medication and diagnostics.

The 36 000 m² Innovation Park opened in September 2015. Located next to the Norwegian Radium Hospital and the Institute for Cancer Research at Oslo University Hospital, The Innovation Park – comprising the Oslo Cancer Cluster, Ullern High School and Oslo Cancer Cluster Incubator – co-locates education, research and industry at a joint innovation campus in Oslo. The Innovation Park thus creates synergies across the entire oncology-value chain.
