Norwegian Agency for Shared Services in Education and Research - Sikt
Sikt develops and delivers services for education and research that makes life easier for students and employees. Sikt aims to ensure that everyone working in the education and research sector has access to secure, stable and comprehensive services.
Sikt – Norwegian Agency for Shared Services in Education and Research is the result of a merger between NSD (Norwegian Centre for Research Data), Uninett AS and Unit – the Norwegian Directorate for ICT and Joint Services in Higher Education and Research.
The agency, which is organised as a public administrative body, has around 370 employees. Its head office is in Trondheim, with branches in Bergen and Oslo.
SIKT organises regular courses and training for researchers, students and administrative staff. You can either join a ready-made programme or have a personalised course.
They hold courses in data management, data protection in a research context, and in data archiving and sharing.
Their advisers can hold a course at your institution, participants can attend a course at SIKT, or the course can be taken online.
