The Centre for Development and the Environment (SUM) was established at the University of Oslo. The University of Oslo was established in 1811 making it Norway's oldest education and research institution. Today the University of Oslo has approx. 30,000 students and 4,600 employees. Within its eight faculties, the University covers a wide range of academic fields while maintaining expertise in very specific areas of interest. Four Nobel Prize winners indicates the quality of the research at the University.
Because of its interdisciplinary mandate, SUM is placed directly under the Board of Directors of the University of Oslo rather than attached to a particular faculty. The Centre has its own Board which includes representatives from four faculties (Social Sciences, Arts, Natural Sciences, and Law) as well as two members from outside the University. More than 50 people are affiliated with the Centre.
The University provides core funding, but most of our activities are externally financed. The Research Council of Norway is the most important single source. Others include NUFU (the Norwegian Universities' Committee for Development Research and Education), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Environment, NORAD, the World Bank, and a number of NGOs.
CROP (Comparative Research Programme on Poverty) was established with a secretariat in Bergen in 1993 in order to promote social science research that theorises and provides understanding of poverty in a global context.
CROP has two institutional sponsors, the University of Bergen (UiB) and the International Social Science Council (ISSC). In 2009 the ISSC signed an agreement with UiB incorporating CROP into the university's academic and administrative environment.
