Company description

The Research Council is Norway's official body for the development and implementation of national research strategy. The Council is responsible for enhancing Norway's knowledge base and for promoting basic and applied research and innovation in order to help meet research needs within society while actively working to encourage international research cooperation. The Research Council of Norway has three main areas of focus. On the one hand, it serves as an advisory body on research policy issues, identifies research needs and recommends national priorities. On the other hand, through the establishment and implementation of targeted funding schemes the Research Council facilitates the translation of national research policy objectives into action. And finally, it also serves as a meeting place for researchers, founders and users of research findings, as well as for the different sectors and subject fields that are affiliated with the world of research. Underlying all the Research Council's activities is the viewpoint that research expands the boundaries of what we know, understand and can achieve. Research adds cultural resonance to society and creates a viable framework for welfare, value creation and sustainable development
