Climate Programme (KLIMAFORSK)

The Large-scale Climate Programme (KLIMAFORSK) is the Research Council’s new, 10-year initiative for climate research. Launched in 2014, the programme will run through 2023.

The KLIMAFORSK programme is a broad-based, long-term research programme aimed at providing new, future-oriented knowledge of national and international significance. At start-up, the programme’s annual budget is approximately NOK 140 million.

The primary objective of the KLIMAFORSK programme is to generate essential knowledge about the climate to the benefit of society. To achieve this, the programme will provide support for basic research, applied research and innovation activities that will help to realise the three following secondary objectives:

  • Increase knowledge about natural and anthropogenic climate change;
  • Improve knowledge about the impacts of climate change on the natural environment and society;
  • Enhance knowledge about how society can and should adapt to the challenges of climate change.

The programme plan divides climate research into three thematic priority areas:
• The climate system and climate change;
• The impacts of climate change on the natural environment and society;
• Social transformation in response to climate change.

The Research Council’s previous large-scale programme on climate research, Climate Change and Impacts in Norway (NORKLIMA), was concluded in 2013. Projects funded under the NORKLIMA programme that had not been concluded in 2013 have been incorporated into the KLIMAFORSK programme portfolio.

Programme period: 2014–2023

Annual budget: Roughly NOK 140 million. The programme is currently funded by the Ministry of Climate and Environment, the Ministry of Education and Research, the Ministry of Agriculture and Food, the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Fisheries, and cross-sectoral funding from the Ministry of Education and Research.
