NCE Heidner Biocluster 

We are Norway’s national cluster for bioeconomy and sustainable food production. The cluster consists of 50 members with approximately 15.000 employees and a combined annual turnover of 66 b NOK. Our members span the value chain from livestock breeding and biotechnology to feedstock, food processing and biomass recycling as well as several academic institutions. 

Our members 

NCE Heidner Biocluster includes corporations and SMEs, research institutes and interest groups. The cluster is centered in Eastern Norway with headquarters located in Hamar. 

The vision of the cluster is to increase growth and profitability for our members through research and innovation and international commercialization. Our Norwegian businesses offer innovative solutions to global problems, such as: 

The cluster serves to showcase for the technologies, products and services offered by our members. 

In November 2018, Heidner Biocluster achieved the status of NCE (Norwegian Centres of Expertise), the national tier of the Norwegian cluster program. 

We are open to international collaboration on the following themes: 

International commercialization – Developed in Norway, consumed worldwide 
We aim to strengthen international commercialization for all members, e.g. by identifying new market opportunities or by building global brands.

Enabling technologies – Leading technology innovation 
Our members are leading in areas such as breeding and genetics, feed ingredients and food safety and security. We are looking to combine  these strengths with tecnhologies from other fields.

Sustainability – Competitiveness through sustainability 
Sustainability is a core competence and competitive edge for all members of NCE Heidner Biocluster. We look to leverage the unique qualities of sustainable Norwegian production for new business models and market opportunities. 

Innovation – The NCE Heidner innovation ecosystem 
We work to accellerate the innovation funnel within the cluster, focusing on radical innovation. We assist members with grant applications to secure financing for innovation projects and finding collaboration partners from the agriculture and other sectors. 

We are Norway’s national cluster for sustainable food production, representing the entire value chain in green bioeconomy.  

Our members can be separated into the following links in the value chain: 

  • Genetics and biotechnology (related to animal and plant breeding) 
  • Sustainable feedstock (ingredients like protein, fat)  
  • Biorefinery (utilization of production side-streams and recycling)
