The centre is a part of The National Support System for Special Needs Education (Statped) which is managed by the Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training. The main objective for Statped is to support those responsible for education in municipalities and country administrations and make sure that children, young people and adults with special educational needs, are provided with qualitatively good educational and developmental provisions. Norwegian Centre for Learning Environment and Behavioural Research in Education cooperates with several of the other resource centers.
There is a wide range of collaboration with other universities and research institutions, especially within the field of Special Educational Needs (SEN).
Norwegian Centre for Learning Environment and Behavioural Research in Education is also working on behalf of the Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training in relevant cases and projects, such as the anti-bullying program Zero.
