University-associated Contract Research Organisations: The Role of SINTEF in Norway and in the Third World

SINTEF (The Foundation for Scientific and Industrial Research) is legally an independent foundation attached to the Norwegian Institute of Technology (NTH), which is the only fully-fledged technological University in Norway. SINTEF was founded in 1950, inspired by the apparent success of many of the numerous contract research organisations (CRO) operating from the campuses of technical universities in the USA. Today it employs nearly 1,900 full-time staff; of these about 1,100 are university graduates, primarily engineers.
