Research Centre for High North operations
The special conditions in the High North - such as vulnerable environment, rough and unstable climate and long distances - represent major challenges for industrial activities in this region.
The Research Centre for High North Operations was established in the spring of 2009. The main objective is to provide research that can foster innovation and development for business and industry in the region. Industry partners, especially in oil & gas and shipping, plays an important role in initiating and developing new research projects.
