Scroll down for a complete list of all 21 Norwegian Centres of Excellence with a short description and links to their home pages.
Centre for the Study of Mind in Nature (CSMN) is hosted by the University of Oslo. The CSMN's core research topics lie at the interface of philosophy and the empirical sciences, such as linguistics, cognitive psychology, political science and economics.
Centre for Biomedical Computing (CBC) is hosted by the Simula Research Laboratory and facilitates access to complex mathematical models for scientists. The primary application area is biomedicine, but the computational methodologies and software tools have relevance to many other areas of science and technology.
Centre of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry (CTCC) is hosted by the University of Tromsø in cooperation with the University of Oslo. The CTCC's research activities cover transition metal chemistry, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, bioinorganic chemistry, photochemistry, gas-phase chemistry and reaction dynamics.
Centre for Cancer Biomedicine (CCB) is hosted by the University of Oslo in cooperation with the Rikshospitalet University Hospital. The CCB aims to combine large-scale and detailed biology research to increase the understanding of the complex dynamics of cancer evolution.
Centre for Immune Regulation (CIR) is hosted by the University of Oslo in cooperation with the Rikshospitalet University Hospital. The scientific goal of the centre is to identify mechanisms of immune dysregulation that contribute to autoimmune disease and allergy.
Centre for Ecological and Evolutionary Synthesis (CEES) is hosted by the University of Oslo. The CEES combines competence from various fields of biology, molecular biology, bioinformatics and statistics to achieve an increased understanding of how living organisms respond and adapt to environmental changes.
Centre for the study of Equality, Social Organization, and Performance (ESOP) is hosted by the University of Oslo. ESOP aims at exploring the links between equality, social organization, and economic performance in rich and poor countries.
Centre for Geobiology (CGB) is hosted by the University of Bergen. The CGB undertakesintegrated interdisciplinary studies on the interaction between the geo-biosphere and the origins of life with a primary research focus on the deep seafloor, the deep biosphere and ancient crust formed in deep time.
