Kurzfassung auf Deutsch: The value of research for society in general is contingent on a successful transfer of knowledge and new technology to the public. This paper presents how the Norwegian seafood industry in collaboration with research institutions established networks for professionals who were in the same line of business to improve communication between research societies and industry. It is described how these networks were organized and operated, and how they developed to play an important role as to what priorities should be given for research programmes related to the seafood industry. Moreover, another long-term, but hardly not expected, effect of the network collaboration was that the seafood industry gradually developed a more positive attitude towards research and development in general. Thanks to this change of attitude, the Norwegian Seafood Federation, together with the fishermens and the fish farmers associations, approved the introduction of a research levy, regulated by law and collected on the export value of seafood from Norway. Such a law became effective from 1 January 2001, and the annual sum collected to strengthen the seafood and fishing industrys research effort totals approximately NKr90 million (US$15 million). Finally, the paper has a concluding discussion on to what extent networks based on the Norwegian model can work among small-scale food producers in developing countries
