About us: Bergen Sleep and Chronobiology Network (BeSCN) is an interdisciplinary research network at the University of Bergen in Norway devoted to research on sleep, sleep disorders, shift work, circadian rhythm, daytime functioning and performance. Our projects include experimental laboratory and field studies, epidemiological and clinical studies involving participants in all age groups. A main goal for all members is to contribute with high impact research within the field of sleep and chronobiology, and to stimulate to creative thinking about these topics. Data from our studies will be made available upon request.
The network was initiated and established by professor Anette Harris, professor Ståle Pallesen, professor Bjørn Bjorvatn and postdoctor Siri Waage. Some members of the network are also members of the Norwegian Competence Center for Sleep Disorders (www.sovno.no).
