Most higher education institutions have taken initiatives to meet the future needs of welfare technology implementation; service innovation and new educational initiatives in the health- and care services. However; many institutions struggle to move beyond pilot studies; to actively contribute in both welfare technology innovation and service innovation and thereby establish long lasting results. The Science Centre Health and Technology opened in 2012 in Drammen; Norway; constituting an arena where researchers; educators and students interact and cooperate with public and private working life as well as users and patient organizations. The Centre offers education ranging from presentations and workshops to higher education programs within health and welfare technology; applying clinical- and simulation training and web-based learning facilities. The Centre develops and implements welfare technology; service innovation and social entrepreneurship. Research is conducted related to the activities in the Centre. his case study describes why and how Buskerud University College (BUC) has developed the Science Centre Health and Technology through a partnership with public sector and private companies. Research questions are: 1) why did BUC develop a Science Centre; 2) how did strategies and characteristics of BUC contribute; 3) how did national; regional and local political strategies and development contribute in this process ; 4) how has BUC contributed to regional development of new educational initiatives; development of welfare technology and service innovation through the preceding process and establishment of the Science Centre Health and Technology and 5) what are the success factors?
