Håvard Haarstad is one of four young UiB scientists who recently received over 80 million NOK from Bergen Research Foundation and the University of Bergen, making world class research possible.
“This gives us the resources to expand our planned research group. We get access to new work capacity and expertise, as the money will primarily be spent on hiring PhDs and postdocs,” says Håvard Haarstad, researcher at the Department of Geography. His project is awarded 9,7 million NOK (ca 1 million Euros) by Bergen Research Foundation (BRS), and has a total budget of 22,8 million (2 million Euros).
Haarstad’s research focuses on energy, climate and society. Currently he and his colleagues are hard at work establishing Spacelab, a research environment dedicated to climate and energy transition.
