Research projects

The projects originates from one or more of the following categories: Health, aquaculture, agriculture, and industrial biotechnology. They are all transdisciplinary, combining biotechnology with digital technology. 12 large collaborative projects are led by project leaders from universities and research institutes supported by the Norwegian Research Council.
