Most of the research is carried out by Institutt for Samfunnsforskning (ISF) in cooperation with Norsk institutt for by- og regionforskning, Uni Rokkansenteret, Universitetet i Oslo and Norsk Regnesentral. They looked closer upon the impact of e-voting, accessibility for the voters, if the voters had confidence in the e-voting trial, and the voters attitudes to secrecy of the ballot and Internet voting.

ISF’s report (assessment 1, 2, 3, and 5):

A smaller part of the research was carried out by the International Foundation for Electoral Systems (IFES). IFES has looked closer upon if the trial resulted in faster counting of the votes, international experiences with e-voting and if the e-voting pilot was in accordance with international rules and standards.
