PROJECTS // THE KUNNE PROJECTS

In the late 1990s I co-initiated and took an active part in creating and branding a portfolio of user oriented research projects under the name Kunne. This initiative has spanned over 50 participating organizations, 12 PhDs scholarships, overall funding of 150 million NOK and included new forms of communicating applied research.
