Research activities

Research activities

Our research activities can be divided into three categories:

Data collection and trailing research

The Concept research programme collects data from major public investment projects that undergo the QA scheme. Also, data collected through research projects and evaluations also stored. The data are stored in the database Trailbase.

Research projects

Based on collected data material we analyse time trends and sector differences, perform in-depth case studies, and study challenges related to the QA scheme itself. Our research projects may focus on the development of tools and methods for appraisal and assessment, and/or on the decision process itself.

Doctoral research work

The Concept research programme contributes to the education of students at master’s and doctoral level. We offer highly relevant research topics based on experience from the Norwegian QA scheme, and in return we receive relevant data, results, and suggestions for further research.
