Stiftelsen SINTEF, (SINTEF)

SINTEF is a private, non-profit research foundation with headquarters in Trondheim, Norway and a secondary office in Oslo. With 2200 employees, SINTEF is the largest independent research organisation in Scandinavia, and one of the largest in Europe. SINTEF seeks intelligent solutions for public and private sector needs based on research and development in technology, medicine, and the natural and social sciences. SINTEF collaborates closely with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the University of Oslo (University of Oslo). Personnel from NTNU work on SINTEF projects, while SINTEF staff teaches at NTNU. The SINTEF-NTNU community involves the widespread joint use of laboratories and equipment.

SINTEF Marine Environmental Technology (SINTEF MET) is a division in the Materials and Chemistry Institute in SINTEF. The division is a national and international leader in research and development related to oil spill fates, effects, response, weathering of oil at sea, and numerical simulation tools for oil spill decision support. SINTEF has just completed a 3-year, 7 million Euro R&D Joint Industry Program focussed on response to oil spills in Arctic conditions. A related 6-year on-going program focuses on the behaviour, biological effects, and development of response strategies for oil spills in coastal Arctic environments.

SINTEF has participated in several European Framework Programs, including ARCOP (Arctic Operations Platform) and SPREEX (Spill Response Experience and Research for Preparedness)


Tasks attributed : Contributor to WP 4. Carry out environmental environmental risk analysis for potential releases of oil in Arctic conditions.
