Our research, education and institutional collaboration activities are focused primarily, but not exclusively, on developing countries and countries with economies in transition.
Since its establishment in 1986 as a centre at the former Norwegian Agricultural University, Noragric has played an important role in developing institutional collaboration agreements with the university's many partners in Africa, Asia and South East Europe. These collaborations not only offer NMBU students the opportunity to take part of their studies abroad, but also for NMBU to welcome students and researchers to Ås.
Noragric staff and students engage in interdisciplinary studies on a wide range of issues concerning poverty, livelihoods, gender, property rights, environmental management, conflict, peace building and post-conflict development in sub-Saharan Africa, South- and Southeast Asia and South America.
