Our interdisciplinary research contributes to knowledge about and understanding of the issues in central societal areas and also to knowledge about measures and interventions to resolve these. The Research Council of Norway, national and regional authorities, stakeholder organisations and industry are our most important clients.
In 2016 there were approx. 35 researchers in this division, two-thirds of them with doctoral degrees. Political science, sociology and economics are key disciplines among the research staff, but we also have technologists, educationalists, organisational psychologists and anthropologists.
