We have employees from over 70 nations and customers in more than 50 countries around the world. 73% of our employees are Research Scientists, and of these, 55% have a PhD. In total, we have more than 2000 employees. SINTEF is located in Trondheim in mid-Norway (approx. 1,400 employees) and in Oslo (approx. 400). We also have personnel in offices and subsidiary companies in Bergen, Tromsø, Ålesund, Raufoss, Mo i Rana and Porsgrunn. SINTEF also operates a research station in Svalbard.
