Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) is pleased to invite you to an open seminar where the results from the project "TTIP: Consequences and implications for Norway" will be presented.

TTIP is a comprehensive trade and investment agreement between the EU and the USA. The negotiations are still ongoing, and many challenges still lie ahead. If they succeed, Norway must choose between joining or not.

In February, a consortium led by NUPI was tasked by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries to examine TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership) and its consequences  for Norway, as well as consequences of different policy options for Norway. Other participants are IFO Institute for Economic Research at the University of Munich, Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research (NIBIO), Menon and researchers at the Faculty of Law, University of Oslo.

The project is funded by the Ministry of Industry and Fisheries, and on 2 November the study will be presented to the Minister.
