About Rob Barnes
Rob Barnes
Production and Communications Office
Phone: +47 951 25 828

I have been working in the field of communications since 1999, specialising in outreach through publications, online media, multimedia, and capacity building.


Currently I manage a growing team of creative professionals that focuses on the development of new technologies and innovations to better deliver scientific advice and information to decision-makers and to deliver GRID-Arendal’s capacity building services. The team consists of a diverse range of personalities, skills and backgrounds, including graphic design, video production, GIS, GEO visualisation, big data sets, digital image processing, cartography, geographical analysis and communication.


I have been fortunate enough in my current position to use the full extent of my communications and media background to develop a multitude of projects as well as supporting the existing communications department. Perhaps the most challenging (and ultimately, the most rewarding) aspect of my current position is the diverse range of language and cultural backgrounds I have encountered.


My main interests include anything related to design of graphical and digital media. And projects related to training with a special focus on youth activities.
