Knowledge development

Contributes to more competitive enterprises

Kongsberg is home to a world class cluster of expertise. NCE Systems Engineering’s (NCE SE) task is to further develop the shared core knowledge base to enhance the cutting-edge expertise of and synergies between the enterprises. This makes Kongsberg to a more attractive cluster for development and industrialisation assignments. There is great willingness to cooperate on the development of the professional community within the cluster.

NCE SE and Buskerud and Vestfold University College (from 01.01.2016: University College of Southeast Norway) have built up the Norwegian Institute for Systems Engineering (NISE). Read more about NISE here.

Important knowledge exchange
The research project Knowledge-based Development (KBD) is a good example of how Kongsberg’s technology enterprises work together across industrial domains. Their exchange of lessons learned enhances the efficiency and competitiveness of the enterprises. In 2013, the participating enterprises saw clear results from the project being rolled out at the enterprises’ global locations. As a result of the KBD project, two new master’s degree courses have been developed at HBV: Lean Product Development and Knowledge Management.

Wants CRI status
Systems Engineering is the ultimate tool for the rapid translation of knowledge into competitive new products. If Norway is to parlay its expertise-intensive industry further, the enterprises must be guaranteed access to talent from the world’s leading research communities. NISE has applied for status as a Centre for Research-based Innovation in the Research Council’s CRI scheme, and it aspires to use its world-class expertise to improve the effectiveness and speed of the enterprises’ innovation processes.
