Celebrate with us the Abel Prize winners for 2020 and 2021.
"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
The Trond Mohn Foundation has awarded NOK 16 million to the Centre for Deep Sea Research at the University of Bergen (UiB) distributed over a five year period. UiB allocates approximately NOK 88 million to the interdisciplinary research centre regarding salary and operations. “The support we receive from the Trond Mohn Foundation makes it possible to carry out voyages and use the best available...

The acceleration of biodiversity change began millennia ago and was often larger than the shift from the last ice age to modern temperatures, a UiB study published in Science shows.
“With this commemoration, the Plastic Whale Heritage alliance and the University of Bergen want to help ensure that the Plastic Whale’s message is not forgotten – the health of our oceans is at stake, and we must act now.”
The University of Bergen and its partners collected four tonnes of plastic waste during this year’s plastic clearing drive. By comparison, 1.5 kg of plastic were found in the stomach of the Plastic Whale.
As part of the University of Bergen’s marine research initiative, an interdisciplinary network on plastic pollution has been set up for researchers, PhD candidates and students.

Mighty floods have carved out deep canyons on Earth. New research suggests this may have required less power than previously thought. Collecting such data, however, may be demanding.
EECRG members have been co-authors of a paper published in Science looking at the impact of human arrival on island biodiversity.
As grantee number 10,000 to receive funding from the European Research Council (ERC), Inga Berre will use applied mathematics in order to understand what happens underground when heat is extracted from the Earth's interior.
