Norwegian interests in the Arctic and Antarctic, as well as national and international commitments, means that we have a particular responsibility to promote knowledge that is necessary to exercise a sound management and business activity in the polar regions.
The Research Council of Norway has allocated funding to eight new projects focused on polar research
The Research Council of Norway has granted 13 research groups status as Norwegian Centres of Excellence (SFF centres) starting in 2013. The new centres will receive a total of more than NOK 2 billion over a ten-year period to produce world-class research.
Research on krill and ice sheets will give new strength to Norwegian activities in the Antarctic.
