INTPART - International Partnerships for Excellent Education, Research and Innovation

The main goal of INTPART is to develop world-class higher education and research institutions in Norway by promoting and funding long term international cooperation in prioritized counties outside of EU. The programme creates a framework for expanding cooperation between research groups considered to be at the international forefront today or that are believed to have the potential to become world leaders in their fields in the future. 

The programme is developed and operated by The Norwegian Research Council and SIU (Norwegian Centre for international cooperation in education), and NCE Seafood and partners have been granted funding for four projects for excellent Research and Education in Aquaculture.
