Meet the political head of Norway's knowledge sector

New beginnings is a recurring theme throughout the latest issue of Forskning magazine. Bladet Forskning 2-12_forside We take a look at the ambitious plans for the new clean energy programme that is taking over for the highly successful RENERGI programme, and we meet the Research Council’s brand-new International Director, Kristin Danielsen.
