International Unit

The Research Council’s International Unit is responsible for coordinating the Council’s international activities relating to the European Research Area (ERA), the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (Horizon 2020), and other types of bilateral and multilateral research and innovation cooperation.

International Director: Kristin Danielsen

The International Unit works to expand the knowledge base for internationalisation, and helps to develop clearly targeted strategies, plans and measures in this sphere. The unit has special responsibility for mobilising Norwegian participation in research and innovation activities within the EU system.

The unit consists of two groups, one responsible for expanding the knowledge base and policy development (the policy team), and one for efforts to enhance participation of the Norwegian research community in the EU framework programmes and other ERA activities (the mobilisation team). The unit’s activities are all intended to promote cooperation in and integration of internationalisation efforts within the Research Council as a whole.
