With construction starting in April 2013 the first tenants are expected to move in to the new Oslo Cancer Cluster Innovation Park in May 2015.
The aim of Oslo Cancer Cluster Innovation Park AS is to reduce the development time for new medicines and diagnostics for cancer. Park will become the first to combine clinical cancer research, biotech companies and a high school. The project will be centrally located on the premises of the Norwegian Radium Hospital, beside Ring Road 3 in Oslo.
“We are excited to finally realizing this project,” says Oslo Cancer Cluster CEO Jónas Einarsson and continues: “With an international experienced construction partner, strong new owners and funding in place we look forward to starting construction. Our own start-up companies that base their technologies on Oslo University hospital’s particular area of research, will soon be able to develop in one of the world’s leading cancer research communities,” Einarsson concludes.
In March it was also announced that the new park will be built by construction company Skanska.
