This chapter analyses the role of technical-industrial research institutes for industrial innovation in Norway. Using statistical data and a survey among firms, it is shown that there are many different types of interaction between institutes and firms. In addition to R&D and technical services, the institutes are a significant source of skilled manpower for firms. Three central roles for the institutes are highlighted: they are a learning partner for industry, they help increase absorptive capacity, and they constitute a flexible repository in the innovation system by helping firms in peak periods and by reducing the pressure on universities through assisting in teaching and supervision.

Keywords:   innovation system, Norway, learning, absorptive capacity
