We are pleased to announce that Svein Berg is the new Managing Director of Nordic Innovation.


Our new Managing Director has a wide and long experience from working with innovation and business development both nationally and internationally. He comes from the position as Director Region Americas at Innovation Norway where he has worked in various positions since 2006. 


Berg also has experience from the private sector, and has previously served as Director at Norway Seafoods ASA and Managing Director of the Norwegian Seafood Council AS. Now he looks forward to take the reins at Nordic Innovation. 


“Nordic Innovation can supplement what is being done in the Nordic countries and bring the business sector together in Nordic projects that benefit everyone. For the last years, I’ve worked close with Nordic Innovation and the work that is being done in Nordic Innovation House in Silicon Valley. By themselves, the Nordic countries would not have gotten the same attention and it shows what results the Nordic countries can achieve when they work together. I am highly motivated and look forward to be a part of the team at Nordic Innovation that works to increase growth in the Nordic countries”, says Berg.


Svein Berg will start his new job 1 April 2017, replacing our current Managing Director Carina Christensen, who will have her last day at Nordic Innovation 31 December 2016.
