RCN - The Research Council of Norway
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.
The Research Council of Norway is a national strategic and funding agency for research activities, and a chief source of advice on and input into research policy for the Norwegian Government, the central government administration and the overall research community.
An important objective is to ensure that Norway adequately invests in research and development (R&D) activity.
