Norway (Norge) is the westernmost, northernmost — and in fact the easternmost — of the three Scandinavian countries. Norway is well known for its amazing and varied scenery. The fjords in the west of the country are long narrow inlets, flanked on either side by tall mountains where the sea penetrates far inland. The ultimate responsibility for the education lies with the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research.

The aim is to educate candidates in biotechnological skills in general, thus qualifying them for careers in a range of organisations including those whose focus is on innovation, commercial development and value creation of marine resources in processes and industry.
We are preoccupied with exploiting the advantage we enjoy as a nation in the form of access to enormous marine resources. Most of the organisms that comprise the marine biodiversity are still little researched. These bio-resources can be the source of unique biomolecules (enzymes, secondary metabolites, proteins/peptides, marine fats and carbohydrates) and the associated genetic codes.
Good relationships with the biotechnological industry are exploited to adapt the teaching, and ensure that it is relevant for commercial development and innovation. Many newly established businesses in the region have their origins in the biotechnological community in Tromsø and the sector is expanding. The programme will give you much sought-after expertise....
