Publisher Ministry of Education and Research

We wish to strengthen the connections between Norwegian and North American higher education institutions. At the start of 2006, the Minister of Education and Research therefore decided that a strategy should be developed to endeavour to strengthen the contact with North America. Such a strategy already exists for collaboration in the area of science and technology. The objective is to supplement this with a corresponding plan for collaboration on higher education.
