    Norway

    From Leiv Eriksson to the Andøya Space Center - Navigation has always been essential to Norwegians. Now YOU can help shape our future…

    Norway is one of the world’s largest oil exporters and a global leader in a wide range of sectors, such as aquaculture, maritime industries, hydropower and other forms of energy, the environment, technology, and telecommunications. It is also Europe’s most diversified maritime nation and commands worldwide respect for its shipping expertise, equipment, and ability to exploit new market niches – including satellite communication and navigation. While Norway’s use of space is born out of the challenges posed by its natural surroundings, the country also has a veritable sea of opportunities at its disposal.

  • Regional Organiser
    Norwegian Space Centre

    The Norwegian Space Centre (NSC) is a government agency under the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries. Its mission is to ensure that Norway benefits as much as possible from its space activities.

    NSC’s areas of focus include activities in which Norway can compete in the global market for space-related goods and services, and which to a great degree are based on national qualifications and needs. In addition to promoting the development, coordination, and evaluation of the country’s space activities, NSC supports Norwegian interests through the European Space Agency (ESA). Norway’s participation in the EGNOS and Galileo programmes is also actively managed by NSC.
