Strategic Centres

SINTEF Materialse and Chemistry is represented in the national research centers for environmentally friendly energy (FME) and research-based Innovation (SFI). We have several Gemini Centers in cooperation with NTNU in Trondheim and the University of Oslo.

Centres for Research-based Innovation (SFI)
The purpose of the SFI is to build up and strengthen Norwegian research groups that work in close collaboration with partners from innovative industry and innovative public enterprises.

Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME)
The objective of the scheme for FME is to establish time-limited research centres which conduct concentrated, focused and long-term research of high international calibre in order to solve specific challenges in the field.

Gemini centres
The Gemini Centres form a model for strategic cooperation in which scientific groups with parallel interests coordinate their scientific efforts and jointly operate their resources.
