Innovative impact with collaborators a world away

Seed funds for Norway promote research collaborations and help deepen partnerships between MIT faculty and their counterparts in Norway.

The Global Seed Funds program—by providing necessary financial support—enables essential travel, meetings, and workshops with the brightest minds from MIT and their counterparts around the world to be brought to one place, providing a platform to learn from one another and collaborate without barriers.
