Norway has become a full member of the European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC), the European Research Infrastructure for marine biological research
Membership of EMBRC-Norway has been possible thanks to a grant from the Research Council of Norway in 2017, which was a "quality stamp" required to become member of this prestigious research infrastructure network.
The leader of EMBRC-Norway professor Arild Folkvord, Department of Biosciences at UiB, explains it this way:
- The membership means that we will be able to offer access to research facilities and services in Norway while our own scientists will gain, in return, access to a number of European facilities. This opens for numerous of opportunities for both use state-of-the-art installations and services and promote scientific collaboration among our European colleagues. Norway, and Bergen in particular, are too small to have cutting-edge expertise in all fields.
