About the panel
The Norwegian Citizen Panel is a collaboration between four departments at the University of Bergen and the UNI Rokkan Centre, and it is led by a steering group. Ideas2Evidence are responsible for the practical operation of the survey, with support from the University of Bergen. For information about the methodology, please go to digsscore.uib.no.
Initiator of the Citizens Panel is Professor Elisabeth Ivarsflaten from The Department of Comparative Politics. She and the steering group have the professional responsibility for the study. Their mandate is to make continuous decisions on behalf of The Norwegian Citizen Panel.
The establishment of the Citizen Panel was financed by The Department of Comparative Politics, The Department of Administration and Organization Theory, The Department of Information Science and Media Studies and The Department of Sociology, all at the Social Science Faculty at the University of Bergen, in addition to the UNI Rokkan Centre. Numerous researchers and administrators from these organisations are involved in the operation and development of the citizen panel. Research projects financed by The Research Council of Norway also contribute to the financing of the panel, as do the University of Bergen and the Bergen Research Foundation.
The Citizen Panel cooperates with Ideas2Evidence in regards to the operation of the survey. Ideas2Evidence is responsible for recruiting participants, and send out and receive the surveys. The panel will also be followed up closely by internal support functions of the University of Bergen, here among the IT Department and The Division of Communication.
