What is Initiativ Vest?
Initiativ Vest is an independent think tank that will contribute to the development of society in Western Norway.
A strengthened collaboration in Western Norway is necessary to unleash the great potential that exists here.
Initiativ Vest will highlight opportunities and challenges in the region and contribute to the public dialogue in Western Norway and Norway through the dissemination of knowledge, opinions and suggestions that contribute to the development we desire.
We will be a meeting space where socially engaged people can meet, and where different opinions and perspectives from society, business, politics, administration, and academia will be promoted and developed.
Initiativ Vest is organized as a non-profit foundation. The Think Tank has a board consisting of ten people from business, academia and society in Western Norway. The foundation receive support from Agenda Vestlandet.

Western Norway’s future must be built on the basis of trust, the region’s natural resources and talent. In addition, we believe that it is an important precondition for the development of Norway that power is decentralized to a greater extent, so that decisions are made closer to the people, natural resources and value creation.
