NIBIO lever av prosjekter - vi henter inn rundt 100 millioner kroner årlig i prosjektinntekter fra nasjonale og internasjonale finansieringskilder. Vi har høy aktivitet innen EU- og EØS-prosjekter og vi deltar også i forskningsprosjekter i Asia, Afrika og Latin Amerika. NIBIO leder flere store internasjonale prosjekter med fokus på matsikkerhet og klimaendringer. Prosjektlisten er ikke fullstendig.

Beyond the genome: epigenetics of defense priming and climatic adaptation in plants

In this project we study epigenetic modifications involved in defenses priming against pests and pathogens and climatic adaptation in plants. These are novel research questions of great interest, both from a basic scientific perspective and from a climate change and crop protection perspective. Healthy, vigorous plants with flexible phenotypes that are well adapted to shifting environmental conditions provide better yield and more efficient carbon sequestration from the atmosphere, with less pesticide use. Understanding the molecular mechanisms of the epigenetic machinery will help inform how epigenetics may be exploited in plant breeding and crop management practices.

Integrated Carbon Observation System in Norway – Terrestrial Part ICOS

The terrestrial component of ICOS Norway aims at monitoring the Greenhouse gas (GHG) balance of key Norwegian land ecosystems and at understanding their response to climate change, variability and extreme events. In this first phase, we concentrate our efforts on forest ecosystems The terrestrial component is represented by a planned class 2 station located in Southeast Norway in the community of Hurdal, Akershus county.

Divisjon for miljø og naturressurser


The multidisciplinary project InnovAfrica aims to integrate sustainable agriculture intensification systems and innovative institutional approaches with novel extension and advisory services. This will strengthen the adaptive capacity of smallholders in Sub-Saharan Africa, thus contributing to their productivity, profitability and nutritional benefits while at the same time reducing environmental impacts.
