Professor Torger Reve, an international expert on economic competitiveness, will present the findings of his latest research on Norwegian global knowledge hubs:  superclusters of knowledge-based industrial development characterized by a high concentration of innovative industrial actors interacting closely with advanced research institutions, venture capital, and competent ownership.

Prof. Reve has extensively researched Norway's maritime global knowledge hub and will describe how Norway developed its unique global position by combining three major factors:  ocean, technology, and knowledge.  Reve's Norwegian perspective will be used to present implications for Minnesota.  He will explain how interaction between organizations with different specialties is essential for innovation and is a key driver for knowledge transfer among enterprises and how nations, regions, and cities must now compete to be the most attractive locations for knowledge-intensive industries.

Professor Torger Reve is the Wilh Wilhelmsen Chair in Strategy and Industrial Competitiveness at the BI Norwegian Business School in Oslo, Norway.  He also heads the Center for Maritime Competitiveness.

Reve's research has concentrated on marketing channels, interorganizational relations, business strategy, and industrial competitiveness.  He has published 12 books on topics such as boards of directors, business strategy, strategic alliances, organization theory, project and international management.  He has analyzed industries such as oil and gas, shipping, banking, telecommunications and retailing, and has been a strategy consultant to top management in many corporations.

Torger Reve has a Ph.D. in marketing from Northwestern University.  He also holds two masters degrees in business administration from the Norwegian School of Economics and Business Administration in Bergen, Norway, and a B.A. degree in liberal arts from Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, Minnesota.
