University of Bergen

The University of Bergen (UiB) is a young, modern university with a main campus in the centre of Bergen, Norway. UiB represents this project through the involvement of two groups.

The Centre for the Science of Learning & Technology (SLATE) is a multidisciplinary research and competence centre with a national and international mandate on the use of data to understand learning and knowledge development. SLATE conducts research on topics such as learning analytics, data literacy, assessment for learning, and creativity, learning & technology to inform education practice and policy.

The second group is UiB’s Department of Biological Sciences (BIO) within Deep-Sea Biology, which strongly focuses on marine ecosystems. Annual research cruises led by the Center for Deep Sea Research explore the highly inaccessible deep oceans in the Arctic.
