The SINTEF Group is the largest independent research organisation in Scandinavia. Every year, SINTEF supports the development of 2000 or so Norwegian and overseas companies via our research and development activity.
In order to ensure that this research is available to society as a whole, we also operate units whose principal activity is consulting. We are also active in testing and certification in a number of areas, not only within the SINTEF Group itself, but also through companies in which we are shareholders and via cooperation with other organisations. These activities make significant contributions to creating added value from the knowledge and solutions produced by our researchers.
We wish to be of use to both small and large companies in our markets. For example, we can help a small-scale gravel producer analyse a rock sample, at the same time as our researchers are playing an important role in developing the next generation of solutions to the problem of energy supply.
By working on a wide range of projects, we are helping to realise our own vision, that of technology for a better society.
