The Norwegian Tunnel Safety Cluster´s unique approach

Written by  Sep 07, 2017

The Road Director General in Norway, Terje Moe Gustavsen, opened the conference by saying "Norway want to be at the forefront internationally and will focus on measures and solutions with special Norwegian/Nordic challenges". This speach opened up a conference with many high quality presentations and a great arena for networking. The Norwegian Tunnel Safety Cluster’s (NTSC) unique approach brings together tunnel operators and owners, policy makers, fire and rescue services with researchers and the tunneling industry to spark innovative solutions to improve tunnel safety, is the message from the organisers at this conference in Stavanger, Norway. 

The Norwegian Tunnel Safety Cluster is a cluster, whose aim is to contribute to safer tunnels and fewer accidents. The conference highlighted that this cluster is important for road users, for fire and rescue personnel, for the transport industry and the whole community.

In the NTSC they aim to collaborate and learn from each other across traditional industries and sectors.

We need new technology and new knowledge. And we have no time to lose!

Says the project team

The vision is that they will be a leading global operator within tunnel safety by 2025, and their key objectives is to develop an innovative and sustainable cluster for companies that want to commercialize solutions for improved tunnel safety in the national and international markets. To arrange these annual conferences is a part of the strategy, and the next conference are already set and will be arranged in fall, 2018.
