K L A R T is a manyfold acronym with many meanings. But, mainly it means 'CLEAR' in Norwegian. To be clear is one of my main principles of my work : show and collaboration in a clear way in analyses, concepts and strategies to find new ways and solutions.

My main fields are regional, urban and neighbourhood  development, housing policies, the housing question, transport strategies, quality of life resilience, participation, culture, creative industries. My tools are social science research methodologies, building up scenarios, SWOT-analyses, Know-How transfer, assessment of trends and developments in society, economy and environment..
