The Norway-EU Science Diplomacy Network has received funding of NOK 1 million (approximately 100,000 Euros) through the Research Council of Norway’s FORSTERK programme. UiT The Arctic University of Norway is the project leader with SDG Bergen Science Advice at the University of Bergen as one of the project partners.

Connecting Norway and the EU

“The Norway-EU Science Diplomacy Network connects EU-funded science diplomacy research, the European Commission and European External Action Service with Norwegian actors in science diplomacy,” says Professor Rasmus Gjedssø Bertelsen from UiT The Arctic University of Norway.

“Norway uses science diplomacy extensively in its relations with Russia, concerning the Arctic, Oceans and the United Nations. The Norway-EU Science Diplomacy Network will bring EU science diplomacy research to Norwegian science diplomacy practice and vice versa,” he explains.
