Through the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research (BCCR), Bergen has become an international powerhouse for research on the climate system and the centre has within its 20-year history grown from 40 to 250 people. How did this development come about? What strategic decisions were behind this development and how has BCCR navigated in a field of mixed science and politics? What are the research challenges ahead and what is the status for our climate after the recent Glasgow climate summit?
