Four joint Indo-Norwegian researcher projects within bio economy

Under the Agreement of Cooperation in Science & Technology concluded between the Government of India and the Government of Norway, the Department of Science and Technology (DST) of the Government of India and the Research Council of Norway (RCN) have started a program for joint funding of Indo-Norwegian joint research projects in mutually agreed fields to achieve world-class scientific results.

The projects funded in this call will strengthen research collaboration between Norway and India within Agriculture and land based food, Biotech, Aquaculture and Bioenergy/Biofuel.

The projects are of high quality and are expected to fulfil the objective of the call; that the project should strengthen already on-going research activities in each research group and contribute significantly to added value to these on-going activities.
