SINTEF is merging its ocean research activities into one new institute, called SINTEF Ocean. The ambition is to strengthen our position as a world-leader in the fields of marine technology and biomarine research.
Important information regarding merger and new company in SINTEF
The name of the new company is SINTEF Ocean AS. The company will have 340 employees and will become an integrated part of SINTEF, owned by strong and motivated industry players.
Agreements which have been entered into with SINTEF Fisheries and Aquaculture AS (Business Register No. 980 478 270) or with Stiftelsen SINTEF, to be performed by the Materials and Chemistry Institute's department for environmental technology, (Business Register No. 948 007 029), will be continued by SINTEF Ocean AS (Business Register No. 937 357 370).
SINTEF has great ambitions for ocean research and innovation. To strengthen our focus, SINTEF will now unite several of its units into one common company for ocean research.
Many of the challenges of modern society can be solved through sustainable use of the ocean. For a long time, SINTEF has been a distinct and important partner for trade and industry and the authorities, and we aim to be on the leading edge to develop future-oriented solutions. So far, the ocean-related activities in SINTEF have been distributed among several of the research group institutes. By joining our forces in this area, we aim to become an even better partner for authorities and customers in ocean industries. We share a common ambition to continue Norway's leading position in marine technology and biomarine research. This requires a multidisciplinary and holistic focus. The merger is also an important step in our work to realise a future Ocean Space Centre, which has been highlighted by the Norwegian government as a priority R&D area in the years ahead.
