Statistics for Innovation is one of the 14 Norwegian Centres for Research-based Innovation. Host institution of (sfi)² is the Norwegian Computing Center. Statistics for Innovation will develop core statistical methodologies, strategically necessary to achieve innovation goals in four key sectors: petroleum, finance, marine and health. The centre started in 2007 and will operate for eight years. It is based at the Norwegian Computing Center (Norsk Regnesentral, NR) in Oslo and is a partnership with the University of Oslo (UiO), the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and 11 partners: Statoil, DNB, Gjensidige, Norsk Hydro ASA, Institute of Marine Research, Sencel, Biomolex, PubGene, Oslo University Hospital, Smerud Medical Research and Spermatech. Statistics for Innovation is funded by the Research Council of Norway and by the partners, with an annual budget of about 4 mill Euro. About 40 researchers will actively join the research projects of the centre. Statistics for Innovation participates to the UiO and NTNU training programmes and will fund many Ph.D grants and postdocs.
Host institution of (sfi)² is the Norwegian Computing Center.
