Norway sees a boost in climate research funding

The Research Council of Norway, the Forskerforbundet, is to award a record amount of funding to climate research this year.

Nearly half of of the council’s NKr 333m (€40m) budget for 2013 has been earmarked for research on climate systems, which includes mitigation and adaptation. The Climate Research programme, which focuses on research directly aimed at understanding climate change, accounts for NKr160m of this budget.

The main source of funding for climate research in Norway is the ‘Climate change and Impacts in Norway’ programme (Norklima), which has received 49 applications for the 2013 funding stream, according to the Forskerforbundet.
