Global and development-related research is one of two priority areas for research at the University of Bergen.
UiB Global is a unit responsible for initiating and coordinating multi- and transdisciplinary research and related activities within this priority area.
The unit aims to strengthen synergies across disciplines and build on the University´s long history of academic cooperation with partners in the Global South.
UiB Global is part of the Department of Research Management. UiB Global's academic coordinator reports directly to Rector.
Poverty, health, food, water, democracy, environment and climate are among the topics that belong to development-related research - one of UiB's two priority areas.
