PR(08)79: The EFTA Surveillance Authority decides not to raise objections to the innovation aid scheme administered by the Norwegian Industry Development Corporation (SIVA SF)

17.12.2008

The EFTA Surveillance Authority has today decided not to raise objections to the innovation aid scheme administered by the Norwegian Industry Development Corporation (SIVA SF) on the basis of Article 61(3)(c) EEA and the Authority’s Guidelines for Research, Development and Innovation. The scheme is valid until 2013.

SIVA is a national policy instrument with the objective of contributing to increased innovation, business development and employment in Norway. SIVA’s aim is to help offset market imperfections in areas with a modest or uniform economic life, in particular in rural areas.

To this end, SIVA ensures that SMEs get acess to services at reduced prices. SIVA’s primary aim is to arrange for the establishment of structures which enable SMEs and start up enterprises to get access to consultancy and support services.
