  2. PhD education
  3. Research centres and projects
  4. Strategic research initiatives

Our research is performed in close collaboration with Norwegian industry and public organizations. We aim for high impact in terms of theoretical and practical contributions such as models, strategies/policies, decision support, tools and methodology. Several of our scientific staff have received international awards for their research contributions. The department has strong relationships with national and international universities and research institutes. Members of the scientific staff participate in many national and international research projects and undertake sabbaticals abroad. Conversely, the department receives numerous guest researchers and PhD candidates.

Our research engages the students in our programmes. Master's students and PhD candidates are directly involved in research projects. Ongoing research activities provide cases and real-life examples for teaching.
