The University of Bergen is an international research university in which all activity is grounded in the principles of academic freedom and curiosity-driven research.

Our objective is to seek, develop and cultivate knowledge through outstanding research, education, dissemination and innovation.

The faculties and the University Museum represent our most important knowledge arenas.

We will profile the relevance of research and education. Discussions and dissemination of knowledge are a prerequisite for developing academia within a democratic society.
