The Research Network on GPS was started in 2009 by the PRIO GPS Centre Director Torunn L. Tryggestad. The network comprises around 50 researchers from various research institutions in Norway. These researchers meet about twice a year to discuss ongoing and new research projects and ideas, exchange information and accommodate research collaboration.
