Norwegian Association of Economists

The Norwegian Association of Economists (Samfunnsøkonomene) is a professional membership association organising people with a higher degree in economics (Masters degree or higher), as well as students of economics.

Samfunnsøkonomene dates back to 1908 when it was founded by students at the University of Oslo.  Samfunnsøkonomene is a collaborative network for economists discussing common issues related to the field. Furthermore, Samfunnsøkonomene is a professional association that seeks to further the field of economics, the interests of economists and provide information to the public on economic issues.

The Association publishes an academic magasine, Samfunnsøkonomen, with nine issues a year. This magasine is sent complimentary to all our members, but is also available for non-members as a subscription. Samfunnsøkonomene also arranges annual conferences and seminars on economic topics such as the Researchers’ Annual Meeting, the Monetary Policy Symposium and the Autumn Conference, in addition to breakfast seminars and a recruiting event for students.

Potential members include researchers and applied economists in business, government and public institutions, universities, research and teaching institutions, and other organisations.


The Norwegian Association of Economists is part of the Federation of Norwegian Professional Associations (Akademikerne), which is the primary Norwegian organization dedicated to improving salary and working conditions for professionals with a higher education. For more information about Akademikerne, please read up on their website:
