Methodological approaches include operations research with a focus on dynamic optimization, efficiency studies with emphasis on data envelopment analysis, econometric studies on multiple data types (existing data bases, survey data and experimental data), and partial and general equilibrium models. The theoretical foundation spans modern micro economics (including game theory), institutional economics, management and marketing.
MSc and doctoral students are integrated in the research process. IØR emphasize interaction among researchers, including an active seminar series. Outside the department's core funding, major research funding sources include the Norwegian Research Council, various Norwegian government ministries, the Nordic Council of Ministers, the European Union, and various private firms.
