SINTEF is the largest independent research organisation in Scandinavia. We create value through knowledge generation, research and innovation, and develop technological solutions that are brought into practical use.SINTEF is a broadly based, multidisciplinary research concern that possesses international top-level expertise in technology, medicine and the social sciences, and our aim is to become the most renowned contract research institution in Europe.
The profits of our contract research projects are invested in new research, scientific equipment and competence development. In the course of the past five years, we have invested NOK 500 million of our own funds in laboratories and scientific equipment.
Partners in cooperation
SINTEF operates in partnership with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, and collaborates with the University of Oslo. We also collaborate with other leading research organisations in Norway and abroad.
SINTEF has clients in about 60 different countries. In 2010, 16 percent of our turnover was derived from international contracts.
Our ambition is to grow in the international R & D market, and for this reason, we are investing in areas in which we are particularly strong: oil and gas, energy and the environment, materials technology, maritime and biomarine technology, ICT, building research and medical technology. We maintain an international presence via our own subsidiary companies or laboratories in the USA, Brazil, Chile and Denmark.
