The Collaboratory

Collaborative futures

The UiB Collaboratory is a partnership between researchers and students with the aim to mobilize innovation in research and higher education in order to deal with the challenges of the 21st century. At the Collaboratory, students are in the driver's seat in the design of courses, research projects, journals, and conferences. We organize the Bergen International Student Conference (BISC) and are working with student-led higher education. The UiB Collaboratory is a platform available to students and researchers from all faculties at UiB and is hosted by the Centre for Climate and Energy Transformation (CET) at UiB.
