University of South-Eastern Norway (USN) has a strong focus on research and development. Our strongest research environments are organized into groups and centers that reflect our commercial profile and practical approach to research. Among these may be mentioned a science center for health and technology, research groups for climate change and alpine ecosystems, for energy and CO2 capture, and TARG – which develops tools, methods, and solutions for improved performance and safety in the maritime and process industries. USN was established as a university on the 4th of May 2018, after Buskerud and Vestfold University College merged with Telemark University College.

In 1823 a small institution was founded that was to revolutionize education in Liverpool and provide opportunities for the working people of the city. This small, pioneering movement was followed by the establishment of the Liverpool Institute and School of Art and the Liverpool Nautical College, and in 1900 Irene Mabel Marsh opened the IM Marsh campus. These organizations together laid the foundations for Liverpool John Moores University, an institution that has grown and flourished and continues to provide opportunities for all. Today, with a vibrant community of 25,000 students from over 100 countries worldwide, 2,500 staff and 250-degree courses, Liverpool John Moores University is one of the largest, most dynamic and forward-thinking universities in the UK.
