Ostfold Research is now NORSUS!

June 8th 2020

Ostfold Research (Østfoldforskning) has today become NORSUS - Norwegian Institute for Sustainability Research. The new name is an expression of an ambition: we want to be even more effective in our mission of contributing to a more sustainable world. We do this by providing a high-quality knowledge base on environmental effects of products, services and value chains, using Life Cycle Assessment approaches (LCA) and integrated economic, social and environmental approaches. We remain based in the county formerly known as Østfold (now Viken), but our reach has always been national and international. ‘NORSUS’ more clearly positions us as one of Europe’s leading research institutes on LCA, a key element in applied sustainability work at a value chain level and a central factor for achieving a circular economy.

New job opening at NORSUS for researchers with a doctoral degree
Do you have a doctoral degree in LCA, circular economy or value chain analyses? We seek a new colleague that desires to contribute to the knowledge base for sustainable decision making. Applicants should master a Scandinavian language. See job post here (in Norwegian).

Endrava and NORSUS have received funding from the Research Council of Norway for the project ‘Klimadult Norge rundt: A workshop tour for knowledge sharing and co-creation of best practice in green nudging’. The main aim of the project is for more municipalities and county municipalities to use nudging as a tool to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
