GAMBIT -- a Global And Modular Bsm Inference Tool
Mar. 3, 2016 3:27 PM
Modern science usually provides both lots of data and very complicated models for the part of reality it is trying to describe. Sometimes there is even so much data, and the models are so complicated, that it becomes difficult to make full use of the data in deciding between models, or finding their properties. The main goal of the GAMBIT project is to write a software tool to help physicists do just that.
Security in Internet Governance and Networks: Analysing the Law (SIGNAL)
Feb. 22, 2016 1:14 PM
SIGNAL is a project on the legal aspects of internet security hosted at the Norwegian Research Center for Computers and Law ( NRCCL). SIGNAL examines changes in legal frameworks for internet security by focusing on established, new and proposed legal security requirements – at both international and national levels – directed at critical internet infrastructure (CII) and cloud computing.

Disentangling the Economic Effects of Political Institutions (DEEPI)
Feb. 9, 2015 10:02 AM
This project studies whether and how particular political institutional characteristics – for example concerning the ruling party, election systems, and the protection of civil liberties – affect economic policies and outcomes under different conditions. More specifically, the project analyzes how different institutions, both in democracies and dictatorships, impact on economic growth and redistributive policies, thereby addressing issues of immense importance for the welfare of citizens across the world.
