“We cannot reach our ambitious climate and energy goals without investing in research and development. I have great expectations for the new centers. They will be crucial in acquiring new knowledge, technology and solutions to realize the low-emission society by 2050,” says Energy Minister Terje Aasland.

The FMEs are consortia led by a research institution to conduct high-level international research in collaboration with industry, government and society. Their research aims to solve core energy and climate challenges while boosting Norwegian business innovation.

“Congratulations to the eight supported centers. They will combine long-term research with applying results both during and after the project period. Norway has built strong expertise in energy research and environmentally-friendly energy, and through the new centers we ensure new knowledge for the future,” says Mari Sundli Tveit, CEO of the Research Council of Norway.

The total funding of NOK 1.28 billion over eight years is managed by the Research Council and financed by the Ministry of Energy.
