The current UiB strategy «Ocean, Life, Society» (2016-2022) identifies Climate and energy transition is one of three committed strategic areas. By creating clusters, forming centers, increasing interdisciplinary cooperation, and including external partners, UiB will try to mark itself as one of Europe’s strongest university in climate and energy transition. Dr. Kristin Gulbrandsen Frøysa, the newly appointed energy director, will together with the academic management at the our faculty, have overall responsibility for leading the energy part of this interdisciplinary focus area. The Director of Energy will be responsible for organizing and leading cooperation on research, education and innovation across the field and the faculties – both locally, nationally and internationally.
