Horizon 2020 Projects

Horizon 2020 projects where UiB researchers participates either as coordinators or beneficiaries.

Active participation in the European Union frameprogramme for research, Horizon 2020 is an important strategic goal for the University of Bergen. On these pages you find the full listing of Horizon 202 projects that UiB parttake in, either as a coordinating institution og beneficiary.

Projects that recieve funding from Horizon 2020, also recieve additional funding from the Research Council of Norway and the University of Bergen.

Prosjekter UiB koordinerer

Ultradian

Dynamic hormone diagnostics

Koordinator: Eystein Husebye 
Department of Clinical Science

Finansieringsprogram: Societal challenges - Personalising Health and Care / RIA

ULTRADIAN is an interdisciplinary research project, addressing the often inaccurate and cumbersome diagnostics and monitoring of endocrine diseases. The aim of the project is to develop new and more dynamic ways of collecting fluid samples, that will both give more precise test results and cause lesser interference in patients regular lifes than traditional methods od diagnostics.

 

SponGES

Deep-sea Sponge Grounds Ecosystems of the North Atlantic

Coordinator: Hans Tore Rapp
Department of Biology

Finansieringsprogram: Societal Challenges - Blue Growth

The main objective of SponGES is to map and investigate the sponge ecosystems in the North Atlantic, creating a solid knowledge base to better preserve and sustainably use the vulnerable sponge ecosystems.
 

Repower Democracy

How grassroots energy initiatives are changing the face of democracy in Europe

Coordinators: Bruce Kapferer / Anna Szolucha
Department of Social Anthropology

Finansieringsprogram:Excellent Science - Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions - IF

A main objective for the project is to investigate the forms of politicisation and imaginaries of egalitarianism in Polish and British communities. A further objective is to draw up research-led strategies for local and systemic social innovation in the field of democratic self-organisation of energy initiatives.

COCLIMAT

Fusion of Alternative Climate Models By Dynamical Synchronization

Coordinators: Noel Keenlyside / Gregory Duane
Geophysical Institute

Funding Scheme: Excellent Science - Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions - IF

The COCLIMAT project objective is to improve on current state of the art climate modelling, through supermodelling. Instead of just averaging the outputs of different models, the supermodel allows individual models to influence each other in run time. One must specify how much weight a given model gives to corresponding data in each other model. Through this technique the weights, or “connection coefficients” are given by a machine learning algorithm. Supermodeling is an instance of “chaos synchronization”, the phenomenon wherein chaotic systems can be made to follow corresponding trajectories by exchanging surprisingly little information.
