Nuclear phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate interactome uncovers an enrichment in nucleolar proteins including PARP1.
"Politicians need proper advice and that is where we as scientists need to contribute as active researchers and communicators", says Tanja Kögel, a researcher at the Institute of Marine Research, and the Department of Biological Sciences at UiB.
Science for nature and people: Webinar celebrating the contribution of research to the evolution of UNESCO’s Man and the Biosphere (MAB) programme throughout the last 50 years. During the morning session we will present and discuss emerging research in sustainability science linked to Biosphere Reserves. In the afternoon we will host a participatory workshop to identify future research horizons... Read more

EECRG members have been co-authors of a paper published in Science looking at the impact of human arrival on island biodiversity.
Global social and environmental issues have recently seen a surge of youth involvement; a development that could be explained by the fact that the youth of today will grow old in the world we are creating now. This new study, published in Global Environmental Change led by Alicia Donnellan Barraclough (UiB, CeSAM), shows that young people have an in-depth understanding of the social-ecological... Read more
In an article for Spire, Inger Måren and Vigdis Vandvik explain why we need nature like never before to achieve the UN's sustainable development goals.
In order to promote cross-disciplinarity and cross-project activities within the centre, Centre for digital life Norway offers financial support for method collaborations and workshops. dCod 1.0 has received funding for several activities. Read about our experiences in the linked blog posts.
The UN Ocean Science Decade gets off to a flying start through the University of Bergen’s new interdisciplinary SEAS Fellowship Programme. For the next 5 years, UiB will be training a new generation of marine research leaders and decision makers to ensure sustainable oceans.
We are excited to start our new research project FUNDER, and to explore the Direct and indirect climate impacts on the biodiversity and Functioning of the UNDERground ecosystem this spring. To that end, we are now recruiting a PhD and a Postdoctoral research fellow.
From sea lice to deep ocean minerals, from basic research to industrial innovation: The University of Bergen (UiB) is vibrant key player.
A new moth species has been named after former EECRG PhD student Perpetra Akite.
CeSAM is a UiB initiative to gather and coordinate research and education of relevance to the management of our land and marine areas. Many of the big challenges of our time - climate crisis, biodiversity crisis, health, food, societal planning - meet in the decision-making around spatial planning, and we are really seeing these issues high on the agenda in both science and society today.
Eric Grimm (born 20 August 1951), a very active collaborator and key-player within our HOPE project, died suddenly on 15 November 2020. Eric devoted his career to doing superb palaeoecological science and to providing a generous service to the scientific community through his development of TILIA software, giving numerous workshops internationally, and managing and enlarging Neotoma, a global...

The Norwegian government has received strong criticism from the office of the Auditor General for the fact that Norway still lacks a comprehensive and cross-sectoral approach, has not prepared national indicators, and lacks ambition almost five years after the sustainability goals were adopted by the UN. Minister of Local Government and Modernisation Nikolai Astrup asked for input on the action... Read more
Several people from the Marine Microbiology group are currently involved in national and international field work campaigns in the Arctic. Working conditions can be hard in this cold environment, but researchers who got to participate in Arctic cruises or field work say it is a life-time experience! Read more about the Nansen Legacy and HAVOC (part of Mosaic) projects as well as CLIMAGAS below.
