Vista Analysis aims to contribute to a better collaboration between students and businesses. We offer supervision for your writing (secondary supervisor – you need a main supervisor at your university) to spesific projects or within services and/or industries we work with.
Currently, we have the following projects in which you may apply to write your thesis:
- Households valuation of security of power supply of critical infrastructures
It is important to know society’s valuation of security of power supply (absence of power outage). Information about the social costs if a power outage leads to a simultaneous breakdown of several infrastructures (e.g. payment services, public transport and tele-services and data communication) is important to ensure a cost-effective development of power grids in Norway. We are planning to conduct a valuation survey to quantify such costs.
- A regional general equilibrium model - NOREG
We have a research project, running over several years, where we further develop the regional general equilibrium model NOREG. A Master’s thesis within this project can either be a policy analysis using the model, or an econometric thesis which contributes to improve the model. In 2021-2022 we are going to have a special focus on issues related to public sector.
Scholarship for Master´s theses
Master students in economics that are writing their master thesis autumn 2021 or spring 2022 can apply for our scholarship. There will be awarded two or three scholarships, at 20 000 NOK each, for Master’s theses with relevant topics. In addition, we offer supervision for your writing (secondary supervisor – you need a main supervisor at your university) and office space in an environment of high professional and academic standards.
Please send your application to Anita.Einarsdottir@vista-analyse.no including CV, transcript of records and a short project plan (brief topic for your Master’s thesis, possible hypothesis and methods). Application deadline is 1st of April.
