The Centre’s aim has been to support PE related research at NHH at the highest level. To do this the centre is running a grant program that has supported a number of papers. Two types of grants haven been given out – first to support new research that will have a high impact. Second the centre has supported projects that will improve our knowledge of the Nordic PE markets. One of the papers supported has been published in one of the leading entrepreneurs ship journals while one is part of the prestigious NBER working paper series and has been extensively discussed in the press in Norway.
