Marius Warg Næss from NIKU’s High North Departement at The Fram Centre has received funding from the European research council as one of nine Norwegian researchers. The next five years, he will study how political complexity can evolve from small-scale cooperative groups in nomadic pastoral societies.
Our research projects are related to cultural heritage monitoring, registration and documentation of traditional knowledge and cultural heritage.
We contribute with research that is relevant to cultural heritage management and social development.
We develop and use GIS-based methods for documentation and presentation of indigenous traditional knowledge and landscape use.
The office has extensive experience as a supplier of expert advice to private and public actors.
The Northern Area Department is located in the FRAM – Northern Area Center for Climate and Environmental Research Office, an association of 19 institutions that conduct interdisciplinary research collaboration.
