The board of Stiftelsen Kristian Gerhard Jebsen decided in a meeting on 2 December 2010 to award a total of NOK 64 million towards the establishment of four new K.G. Jebsen centres for medical research. Including the allocations that were made earlier in 2010, the foundation has, in the course of its first year in operation, made total allocations to Norwegian research of NOK 87.5 million.
When Stiftelsen Kristian Gerhard Jebsen was announced on Mars 18, 2010, it was also made known that the foundation had donated funding for a professorship in Technical Safety at The Department of Production and Quality Engineering (IPK) at NTNU. Stein Haugen has been appointed to the professorship, and he joined the IPK faculty on October 1, 2010. Technical Security is part of RAMS at IPK.
Stiftelsen Kristian Gerhard Jebsen is a foundation established to honour the memory of Kristian Gerhard Jebsen and his contribution to Norwegian and international shipping and business.
Assets in the order of NOK 800 million to support various worthy causes have been transferred to the foundation. Aud Jebsen has taken the initiative on its establishment together with her three sons, and has provided its capital.
