Brief status update from the Nansen Center

The first half of 2021 is soon behind us, and the Center operation has continued with a satisfactory trend from 2020.


Our Annual Report for 2020 is finalized, with several interesting stories about our research activities. You find it both digital on Flipsnack, and as pdf.

During this last month we received the results of the project proposals submitted since the beginning of the year, and we are pleased with the number of projects funded by the Research Council, the Space Agency, and the Bjerknes Centre.

Tomorrow, on the 1st of July, we are moving to the renovated East Wing of the Geophysical Institute building at the University of Bergen. After 17 years here at Marineholmen, and prior to that, 17 years in Edvard Griegsvei, we will be back where it all started in 1986. We will now become very close neighbours with some of our local collaborating partners – the University of Bergen, NORCE, the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research, and the Meteorological Institute. The synergy effect resulting from this colocation is expected to stimulate new opportunities that will strengthen the environmental and climate research. It will not come automatic – each and every one of us has a role to play. 

Last but not least, we want to warmly welcome Tore Furevik, the former director of the Bjerknes Centre, as our new Nansen Center director from the 1st of July!

With these good news, we at the Nansen Center wish you a great summer!
