The Norwegian University of Science and Technology has established the country's first research programme on video and computer games. The programme complements the country’s existing higher education offerings in computer game design and technology, and has as its goal to coordinate and stimulate new research on various aspects of computer games, both within the university itself and among the half-dozen universities and university colleges that offer computer-game related studies. In addition, the programme will work to strengthen the link between the industry and academia with a focus on innovation of computer games. Currently, the programme has established collaborative agreements with Telenor R&I, Arm Norway, FunCom, TellU, Nordisk Film A/S Interactive (the distributor of Sony Playstation in Norway) and Microsoft.
