The multidisciplinary research projects in the centre combine biotechnology with digital technology in health, aquaculture, agriculture, and industrial biotechnology. There are altogether 17 large projects in the Centre, that are led by project leaders from universities and research institutes supported by the Norwegian Research Council. In addition, there are 19 associated partner projects.
