FME Research center

NTRANS will study the role of the energy system in the transition to the zero-emission society.

The research will build a knowledge base for the road to and the consequences of deep and rapid energy conversion for different groups in society. An important part of this is to find out how the restructuring can be done fairly and democratically, while at the same time providing business opportunities for innovation and value creation from Norwegian resources.

The center will bring together sociology, political science, economics, economic geography, science and technology studies, innovation studies.
