Knowledge, politics and organization

Dissertations in progress

Tore Tjelmeland:

My project is a study of safety in the petroleum industry, with a special focus on what is being described as the HSE (health, safety and environment). The term is used across institutional boundaries and classic conflicts of interest. I will study how the concept is understood and operationalized within the four different areas of the sector.

Gigliola Mathisen: 

My PhD project is a study of changes in the organization of research at Norwegian universities. How universities organize externally financed research is a key input and is studied at the policy level, university level and through two case studies of university-based research centers.
