We are proud to partner with other research organizations both large and small as well as with user organizations.
Research collaboration is crucial for producing high-quality research and we have many good partners.
User collaboration is very important to us; we need people who have experience and know what it is all about.
No one is best alone, and therefore we participate in small and large cooperation groups, both nationally and internationally.

The project leader is Dr. Anja Dirkzwager who is part of the research group in the PriSUD project.
WayBack - We follow you on the road
WayBack is a non-profit foundation that works for the return of prisoners to society. The PriSUD project has been fortunate to have WayBack and Johan Lothe on the team. Through their organization the project gains a better understanding of the transition from prison to society. As of 2021, the project has financed a position at WayBack to further strengthen our collaboration.
In March 2019, an evaluation of WayBack was created as part of the PriSUD project. The evaluation is a user survey with a focus on the experience of the offer, where the results will be used to evaluate the current offer and to plan future activities.
The Prison and Probation Service's Education Center (KRUS)
The Prison and Probation Service's college and education center KRUS officially opened on April 1, 1937 (known at the time as "Prison School"). At KRUS, prison officers and other staff are trained, and various continuing and further education courses are offered for prison employees. The leader of the PriSUD project, Anne Bukten, is partly employed by the research department at KRUS, which gives the project a direct connection to prisons in Norway.
