Consulting

SALT is a unique combination of cross-disciplinary knowledge connected to marine resources and coastal value creation. We live and work in the arctic north – with first row seats to future opportunities and the challenges of today. SALT’s competency is based in knowledge about the coast and the northern region of Norway, located by the sea. This gives us valuable local perspectives founded in global knowledge. When making decisions for the future of the coastal areas in the north it may be ensuring to go into dialogue with a competent dialogue partner. When doing research on where the course should be set for the future, it might be exciting to set sail with innovative coastal sailors. When you want to navigate towards the future in the north, SALT may be just the right dialogue partner for you!
