And we have developed our contacts with the world around us, which will have major repercussions for the cultural community and the business community in the entire west coast.

Systematic focus on research

In particular, citations of publications and research quality and impact that contributes to UiB’s strong position among the world’s leading universities.

“The university’s successes and strong international position would have been inconceivable without our systematic investment in research and research training in all communities” said Grønmo.

Better than Copenhagen

“We have a higher ranking than other well-known Nordic universities, such as Uppsala and Copenhagen. So that says something about how strongly we’ve done it.”
