The advancement of knowledge and contract research is organized in four research groups within the following areas:
 
Multidisciplinary and comprehensive
An increasing number of research assignments from business and public administration result from the growing demand and complexity of requirements.
 
The particular assets of Norut are related to the expedient and future-oriented organisation of the institute so as to be able to meet these demands. Researchers are associated with the particular research group encompassing their special field, but they also cooperate within a multidisciplinary environment where skills in the social sciences and technology are contained under a single roof.
