Transnational Partnership for Excellent Research and Education
Find out more
The BDEM research and education network is coordinated by Western Norway Research Institute and will run for a term of three years. The project aims through a cooperation between Western Norway Research Institute, University of Bergen and six world class universities from the USA, Japan and Hong Kong, to establish a long term partnership where excellent education is to be embedded in excellent research in big data and emergency management.
Master students with relevant backgrounds will be integrated into the partners' ongoing research with academic publications as the final goal. A high quality of student and faculty mobility will be established. This will result in enhanced education and the development of expertise into Norwegian academia, e.g. BDEM curricula into the professional training of research education of tomorrow's data scientists, researchers and policy-makers.
It will also result in deeper research collaboration, which in turn will enrich the educational track of Norwegian Master students. The increased contact and mobility will also help the students' possibilities of getting collaborators and relevant hosts for their research stays in the USA, Japan and Hong Kong.
