Sandefjord and Halden, Norway

Halden wins this round, didn’t realize it was such a destination for scientific research…

Sandefjord, Norway

“Sandefjord was formerly a famous health resort, with various kinds of baths for health improvement. Amongst these were salt water sea baths, mud and sulfur baths. Visitors included royalty, a prime minister, and some of Norway’s foremost cultural personalities. Around 50,000 people, mostly Norwegians, visited the bath from 1837 to 1939. Today the bath’s building has been restored and now hosts cultural events and various activities.”

Halden, Norway

“The OECD Halden Reactor Project (established in 1958) is one of the world’s longest running international research collaborations, with 20 countries participating (2005) and the largest international research project in Norway. This ensures a steady influx of international guest scientists to the city.”
