The development of a multifunctional and sustainable Norwegian agriculture, including rural development represents the framework of our agricultural research.

Our Research and Development activities (R&D) are aimed at enhancing viable farming based on the diverse agro-ecological conditions, and on the potentials of the agriculture and horticulture crops grown in Norway.

Modern field trial and greenhouse facilities are important parts of our research capacity. Food security and safety are the overall objectives in our agricultural research projects. Our R&D activities are directed towards end-users, such as the agro-industry and extension services, as well as policy support at regional and national levels.
