Transitions in the outfields


In Norway, the outfields [utmark] are understood as mainly uncultivated countryside areas such as forest and upland, and make up over 70 per cent of the country’s land area.

The outfields form the basis for industries and activities such as grazing, forestry, hunting, fishing, recreation, wind- and hydropower production and mining. In this network project researchers will discuss crucial developments and challenges in the outfields.
