Research Council Norway (RCN)

Funding Agency

The Research Council is Norway's official body for development and implementation of the National research strategy. The Council is responsible for enhancing Norway's knowledge base and for promoting basic and applied research and innovation in order to help meet research needs within society. It actively promotes international research cooperation. The RCN has three areas of focus:

  1. it serves as an advisory body on research policy issues;
  2. it identifies research needs; and
  3. it recommends national priorities. Through the establishment and implementation of targeted funding schemes the RCN facilitates the translation of National research policy objectives into action.

The RCN serves as a meeting place for researchers, funders and users of research findings, as well as for the different sectors and subject fields that are affiliated with the world of research.
