CEED is celebrating its four-year anniversary!
The Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics was opened in March 2013, and in 2017 turned into four SFF-year-old centre. CEED is a Centre of Excellence (CEO) at University of Oslo, hosted by the Department of Geosciences.

Today CEED has over 50 employees, each of which working within different interdisciplinary fields. From the humble beginnings in 2013 there were about 20 employees, and many came from the former CEO centre PGP (Physics of Geological Processes).
In addition to those employed at CEED nowadays, several members of the permanent academic staff at the Department of Geosciences contribute to research under the CEED umbrella. Department of Geosciences is also the host institution for the Centre.
Highly visible on an international stage
The activity level of the centre is high; participation in major international geoscience and Earth Sciences conferences are frequent, the staff has a high publishing factor, and open seminars almost every week. The Centre is contributing to outreach through its social media channels too, has his own Blog, Twitter and Facebook accounts. Research findings are cited often in the media, too.
Many of CEED's researchers have also managed to become noted both here in Norway and abroad with awards and allocation of research funding. Trond Helge Torsvik received in 2016 the University of Oslos research award, an award that is highly sought after.
The high activity level helps to make the research environment bigger and gives a more extensive activity into the future.
