University Type and Campus :
The Hjort Centre for Marine Ecosystem Dynamics conducts cross-disciplinary research of natural and human-induced changes in the ocean with the aim of increasing the sustainable harvest of marine living resources. Since climate change and other drivers alter the marine environment at unprecedented rates, our ability to predict marine ecosystem dynamics in the near and longer future hinges on a thorough understanding of the mechanisms that govern species dynamics and interactions. Through a partnership between institutions having complementary strengths and competences, the Hjort Centre is in an ideal position to address this challenge.
The Hjort Centre is a collaboration between the Institute of Marine Research, the University of Bergen, Uni Research, and the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center and is located in Bergen, Norway. It was opened in February 2014 by the Prime Minister of Norway Erna Solberg.
