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. See contact persons if you want more information but if you don't know who is working in your area of interest.
  • 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.
