The research institutes SINTEF Materials and Chemistry and SINTEF Petroleum Research have merged from 1 January 2018. The new institute is called SINTEF Industry.

SINTEF Industry performs contract research and delivers solutions and services that create value for customers. With our cross-disciplinary knowledge base and advanced laboratories as a base, we develop – in close collaboration with our customers – technology and solutions within a broad range of research areas and industries.

Tel-Tek Foundation in Porsgrunn is merged into SINTEF as a research group in SINTEF Industry. Through this merger, SINTEF comes even closer to the industry in the region, and brings valuable cutting edge expertise in powder technology, CO2 capture and storage, early-stage cost estimation and biogas.

Strategic Centres

SINTEF Industry 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.
