Bryn Aarflot supports innovation! One of our major focus areas is contributing to innovation within the life science sector by advising clients ranging from small startup businesses to well established life science organizations. As a member of the Oslo Cancer Cluster, and with a regular presence in the Oslo Science Park, we have a particularly good overview of the industry, and we can help protect the good ideas from the very first laboratory experiments.
