The Newton Rooms in Norway are owned and operated locally by municipalities, in collaboration with county councils and businesses.

The regional educational authority is essential for successful Newton operations. It is the education authority who allocates educational resources, adapting them to the needs of the local region.

Newton Rooms are established in close cooperation with the local business community and is run by a local operations group. The group is composed of school leaders, Newton Teachers, and others who would be a good fit for the Newton Room. 

Local businesses often provide financial support for Newton Rooms, e.g. for equipment. 
The partnership with FIRST Scandinavia gives the NOP the opportunity to use the Newton brand in order to attract investors and sponsorships from industry partners or government. The NOP pays an annual fee per Newton Room to FIRST Scandinavia, the owner of the concept.
