The Research Council of Norway is a funding supporter of the International Centre for Reindeer Husbandry, the EALAT research project and the development of the Reindeer Portal.
Research is a driving force behind the advancement of Norwegian society and is vital to promoting scientific and knowledge-related development. Research is in and of itself enriching and comprises an important part of Norwegian culture. At the same time it provides direct practical benefits and is a tool for satisfying society’s need for concrete results. By carrying out broad-based, high-quality research activities, Norway can contribute actively to the global pool of knowledge and gain access to the international knowledge community. In keeping with its vision, the Research Council incorporates the widest possible range of motivations for research activity into its efforts, and its objectives, instruments and working methods are adapted accordingly.
