NORBRAIN is an NTNU-coordinated national infrastructure for neuroscience. The project is structured around two Centres of Excellence - the Centre for the Biology of Memory at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and the Centre for Molecular Biology and Neuroscience at the University of Oslo - as well as one Centre for Research-based Innovation - the Medical Imaging Laboratory at NTNU. The contribution will be used to set up state-of-the-art neuroscience equipment across a broad spectrum of molecular and systems neuroscience. A total of NOK 400 million is being allocated under the National Financing Initiative for Research Infrastructure this year.
- We collaborate to get one of the best neuroscience infrastructures in the world, Director Edvard Moser says.
International perspective - The new state-of-the-art equipment will enhance our opportunity to conduct groundbreaking research, Moser says. - The project also has an international perspective in that it makes it easier for us to receive guest researchers and researchers in training.
