Research Council of Norway (Norway)

The Norwegian research funding and science policy advice body.

Acronym: RCN

Through its efforts as an advisory body on research strategy issues, a research funding agency and initiator of meeting places and networks, the Research Council seeks to meet and constantly refine the objectives for Norwegian research policy. The Research Council of Norway comprises four research divisions, one division for administrative affairs and an executive staff organised directly under the Director General. The Research Council has some 400 employees. Underlying all the Research Council's activities is the viewpoint that research expands the boundaries of what we know, understand and can achieve. Research adds cultural resonance to society and creates a viable framework for welfare, value creation and sustainable development.
