Norsk Regnesentral (Norwegian Computing Center, NR) is a private, independent, non-profit foundation established in 1952. NR carries out contract research and development projects in the areas of information and communication technology and applied statistical modeling.
The clients are a broad range of industrial, commercial and public service organizations in the national as well as the international market. Our scientific and technical capabilities are further developed in co-operation with The Research Council of Norway and key customers. The results of our projects may take the form of reports, software, prototypes, and short courses.
NR has 75 employees and the majority of the scientists have a phd degree. As our research areas are methodological, we have a close cooperation with other research institutions, in addition to users in private and public sector.
NR has contributed to the constitution of several private companies. These companies were founded either by NR as an organization or by employees. NR has also helped persons and other organizations to start new companies, contributed in developing new business areas for private companies and participated in the reorganization of work in public organizations.
