Kongsvinger region

Business clusters and networks

Cross functional collaboration and competence sharing can enhance growth opportunities for businesses. Over the past years, several operational business networks have been established in our region with the intent to share knowledge and learn across industries.

"We are in the middle of an uncertain and demanding time. Never has the need to accelerate green industrial growth been more relevant and more critical. In the Kongsvinger region, we have a well-established collaboration across industries where we jointly work with innovation based on trust, competence and shared belief in an exciting future. This could become a model for reindustrialisation in other regions of the country."

Chris Samways, Chairman 7strong


7sterke is an industrial cluster consisting of 94 small and large companies that interact and innovate in the Kongsvinger region. The purpose of the cluster is to influence regional business development and policy, create regional attraction, stimulate innovation and competence development and market the region as an attractive industrial region.

The industrial cluster has four professional networks within production, HR, market and sustainability. In each network, members can meet others from their own subject area and share knowledge and experiences across commune boundaries and companies to contribute learning and development.
