The Research Council of Norway and Department of Science and Technology, Government of India has launched a new call for proposal for bilateral research collaboration, this time in the field of bioeconomy.

What is bioeconomy? The bioeconomy comprises those parts of the economy that use renewable biological resources from land and sea – such as crops, forests, fish, animals and micro-organisms – to produce food, materials and energy. 

The goal for the collaboration is to increase the knowledge about resource utilization and to strengthen cooperation between researchers and the business sectors in the two countries.

The following topics are covered by the call:

  • Agriculture and land based food
  • Biotech
  • Aquaculture
  • Bioenergy/Biofuel
