VIA – Vital infrastructure arena is a national Arena Pro cluster headquartered in Stavanger. The cluster has over 100 members from across the country, with over 80 of these being companies.


VIA is a national cluster that will contribute to the development of secure, smart and sustainable transportation infrastructure for the global market.


To be able to reach UN's sustainability goals, we must utilize fewer resources, decrease greenhouse gas emissions, and stop pollution of the sea and land. The society needs new technology and new knowledge. We believe VIA is an important organ that paves the way for innovation and collaboration-based development. By connecting players across traditional industries and sectors, challenge established practices, and assist in the process of launching innovation projects and pilots, we believe it is achievable. This way, the cluster contributes to strengthen the competitiveness of member companies, who develop smart, secure and sustainable solutions for a better transportation infrastructure both nationally and internationally.

Our vision

We will be a global leader in ​safe, smart and sustainable transport infrastructure

Main objective
