In Lyse's team

We are proud to sponsor regional energy sources.

Lyse is among the proudest sponsors in the region when it comes to sports, culture and community. We can be found everywhere there are people, providing support in the form of power, fibre-optics or gas. We also provide funding for causes important to the people of Sør-Rogaland.

Viking FK is one of the causes important to us and perhaps the collaboration most people are aware of. This collaboration has been ongoing for 20 years. We also collaborate with other important foundations, organisations and teams that we are happy to support.

Through the Lyse Spirer scheme we contribute to stimulating the diversity of organised activities available in the region and each year we distribute around 4500 safety vests to all first year pupils in Sør-Rogaland. Lyse's Forskningspris (research award) is awarded every autumn.

Below you can read more about the organisations, clubs and cultural causes we contribute to and the reasons why we think it is important to contribute. 

For the future and those who research it

Lyse's 'Forskningsprisen' research prize is awarded to a researcher or research group at UiS or IRIS who has excelled through groundbreaking scientific work on a national or international level.

Lyse's 'Forskningsprisen' research prize is awarded to a researcher or research group at UiS or IRIS (International Research Institute of Stavanger) who has excelled through groundbreaking scientific work on a national or international level. The prize is intended to stimulate groundbreaking research and development of strategic research areas and positive academic environments.

A great example of this is the winners of Lyse's research prize in 2012. Axel Hiorth and Merete Vadla Madland were awarded the prize for their work on establishing a multidisciplinary research group from UiS and IRIS. The expertise in this academic environment and Hiorth and Madland's efforts contributed to UiS being awarded the new national centre for oil extraction. This will strengthen the entire region and is something Lyse wishes to contribute to.
