A new Norwegian service organisation for education and research community has come into being as of 1 January 2022.
Sikt has been created as a merger of former NREN Uninett, NSD (Norwegian Center for Research Data), and Unit (Directorate for ICT and joint services in higher education and research). The mission of this new organisation will be to develop and deliver services to education and research under one umbrella and safeguard access to secure, stable and coherent services to everyone within the community.
Heading Sikt will be Roar Olsen, former head of Unit. Tom Røtting, former CEO of Uninett, will continue to head the data and infrastructure division, and he will also continue his tenure on the NORDUnet board of directors.
