Marit is an economist with a PhD from the University of Oslo and a MSc from the University of Stockholm. Her dissertation is on Norwegian firms’ behavior when facing government regulations and funding, such as environmental taxes, tradable and non-tradable emission quotas, technology standards or R&D subsidies. To investigate effects of such instruments on polluting emissions, innovation and other economic measures, she uses micro econometric (statistical) methods.
She has experience as a government analyst in a multi-agency center (NTAES, located in ØKOKRIM). The purpose of the collaboration is to create a knowledge foundation on matters of economic crime, for agency leaders of five Norwegian agencies covering the Police, the Tax authority, the Labour inspection, the Labour and welfare administration and Customs. The information was based on multi-agency microdata, interviews with industry and expert organisations and agency officers.
- ACT - Public responses to climate policy instruments ACT will establish the first scientifically based annual survey tracking Norwegians’ attitudes and actions in response to climate policy instruments.
