Abstract

[Foreword] With a team of 700 employees and offices all over Norway, NIBIO is involved in a diverse range of projects in a number of places. The NIBIO team—distributed across five divisions and 16 locations, including Campus Ås— supports governmental bodies, public authorities, and industry by delivering research, analyses and reports, data, calculations, and decision-making tools. All this is carried out with a focus on value creation and sustainability—the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals are a key driver of many of NIBIO’s professional activities.

Abstract

NIBIO – the Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research - develops knowledge on what the Norwegian bioeconomy actually is. NIBIO has a strong focus on sustainability, value creation and the primary industries’ knowledge requirements. At the same time, the environment, resource base and climate are core areas in our work. This gives us a unique combination of expertise, with which we can integrate questions of production with environmental challenges, and where economic and social dimensions are included. Basic knowledge of biology and biological processes linked to advanced technology provides us with opportunities for new understanding, new solutions and increased value creation. It is important for NIBIO that our knowledge is of use for industry, the administration, decision makers and other research institutions. NIBIO - Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research was established July 1 2015 as a merger between the Norwegian Institute for Agricultural and Environmental Research, the Norwegian Agricultural Economics Research Institute and Norwegian Forest and Landscape Institute. In this brochure we present a taste of the projects we have worked on in NIBO’s first year, examples that show the institute’s breadth and potential.
