Portrait Ingrid Hobæk Haff

June 11, 2013 NR’s Ingrid Hobæk Haff received the Norwegian Statistical Association’s Sverdrup award for young researchers 2013 for the article «Parameter estimation for pair-copula constructions», doi: 10.3150/12-BEJ413.

Ingrid Hobæk Haff works as research scientist at Norsk Regnesentral, department SAMBA. The article is part of her PhD dissertation «Pair-copula constructions – an inferential perspective» and was published in the renowned journal Bernoulli.


This workshop focuses on the prediction of effects of climate change in various branches of the Nordic economy and society.

The workshop will be an occasion for stakeholders, statisticians and climate scientists to review the current understanding of climate change effects in key areas of the Nordic societies, and to start designing the research road map needed to reach a more precise understanding of future scenarios, with realistic measures of uncertainty, thus empowering business, technology and political decision makers with precise assessment of risk.

The workshop will be held at Norsk Regnesentral, Oslo, and is open to all participants, with no registration fee. Read more about the workshop and for registration.

In the research project uTRUSTit, we look at users’ trust to different “things” that will communicate over the Internet of Things.

The user evaluations consisted of several scenarios where a user would do some task with the help of the Internet of Things. The prototypes should give users a better overview and control over where information goes over the Internet. Read more about the project—including a video of the prototypes in action—on the Aftenposten’s website.

The net surplus for 2012 was 3.5 million NOK and income from operations was 1.4 million NOK. The financial position of NR is good with equity of 67.4 million NOK and an equity ratio of 72 %.

A large number of projects were carried out at the Norwegian Computing Center (NR) in 2012. Industry and commerce financed 40 % of NR’s projects, while the Research Council of Norway contributed with 37 %, the public sector provided 12 %, and international projects financed 11%.

The annual report for 2012 can be downloades as pdf.


A news story published by the Research Council of Norway has received considerably international attention. The results from the project were given in a report to the Research Council of Norway.  The methodology was published in Environmetrics in 2012, but the final estimates are still under peer review in a scientific journal. NR and CICERO will wait with dissemination of these results until they are accepted by a journal.

Further information is given by CICERO.

Researchers at NR work with the technology of the future and find out how to apply technology for solutions that are secure, user-friendly, and universally designed. The Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK) produced this news item on some prototypes that are used in the uTRUSTit project.

A previously unknown grave field containing 16 grave mounds has recently been discovered by automatic pattern recognition software developed by the Norwegian Computing Center. Covered by spruce forest, the grave field is impossible to discover from aerial photography.

Norsk Regnesentral instituted in 2009 an award for the best thesis in mathematics and computer science at NTNU. This year the prize went to Anne-Cecilie Haugstvedt.

Norsk Regnesentral instituted in 2009 an award for the best thesis in mathematics and computer science at the University of Oslo. This year the prize went to Kristina Rognlien Dahl and Eivind Stordal.
