The Centre for Digital Life Norway (DLN) is a national centre for biotechnology research, education and innovation. It is run as a collaborative project by the University of Oslo (UiO), University of Bergen (UiB), and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), supported by the Research Council of Norway. The activity is organised as a leadership and network project, including a research school and research projects. The centre facilitates transdisciplinary collaboration across institutions and fields of research, and between the research projects. The host institutions of the research projects constitute the hub- and node-structure of the network.
