SINTEF expands in Brazil

SINTEF is setting up a research foundation with headquarters in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The Instituto SINTEF do Brasil will play an important role in reinforcing SINTEF’s position in the international research and development market, says SINTEF Group President Unni Steinsmo.

SINTEF’s interest in Brazil is primarily due to the fact that there is a large and still growing market for R&D in the petroleum sector. There will be a huge need for technology development in the near future, similar to what we have seen on the Norwegian continental shelf during the past 40 years.
