New infrastructure will provide local and international researchers with simpler, faster and better access to Norway’s registry data.

The Research Council of Norway has allocated 4,5 million Euro for developing the Remote Access Infrastructure for Register Data (RAIRD). First and foremost, the new infrastructure is designed to support social science research, but it will also be suitable for other research fields that utilise registry data, such as environmental science, cultural studies, and medical and health research.
