Vision for the strategy period 2021 – 2025
Department of Geosciences shall conduct research, teaching, outreach and innovation of high quality in geosciences. Our vision is to increase our knowledge of the dynamic Earth and planetary systems and to pass it on to future generations. Our ambition is to be among the top five geoscience departments in Europe.
The primary tasks of the Department of Geosciences at the University of Oslo (UiO) are to conduct research, education, dissemination and innovation in the field of geosciences. The Department covers a wide breadth of the geosciences; from mantle and lithosphere dynamics on the Earth and other planets, via surface processes in the boundary layers between the Earth’s surface and the air, to the dynamics and interactions of the hydrosphere, cryosphere, atmosphere and biosphere. This broad knowledge base is recognised nationally and internationally.
