Global UiO

A globally engaged university

Many of the 21st century’s global challenges associated with areas such as climate, energy, health, poverty and violation of human rights observe neither disciplinary boundaries nor geographic borders.

UiO aims to make a significant contribution to the knowledge base that is needed in order to address the major global challenges of today.

Sometimes web page creators store some additional data in the source. Interesting!

"More than 99 percent of global knowledge acquisition takes place outside of Norway, and science is of its nature a cross-border field. Therefore we welcome international students and researchers to our campus, as well as institutions, businesses and others who wish to work with us."

Rector UiO Ole Petter Ottersen
