Cooperation with industry

A significant amount of the faculty's research is carried out in co-operation with industry and with government departments.

Types of co-operation

  • Direct contact on a scientific basis between our academic staff and colleagues in industry are vital. There is considerable variation in methods.
  • Co-operation in research projects with finance from the Norwegian Research Council, the EU and similar bodies.
  • Formal co-operative agreements have been established with Telenor and Gjensidige. The purpose of such formal agreements is to establish a good basis for comprehensive academic co-operation, which can cover research, scholarship programmes, exchange of personnel, student projects, education, further education or other conditions of interest to the company. The faculty has produced a standard form of contractual agreement and is working on setting up more co-operative agreements.
