Partner institutions, network and affiliated projects
The following institutions jointly developed the project and are EMERALD partners:
- Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo (holder of the project)
- Natural History Museum, University of Oslo

Network and affiliated projects
In line with the call from the KLIMAFORSK program funding EMERALD the project will integrate existing activities among partners and provide added value through critical mass and more effective cooperation with existing and new affiliated projects. Thus EMERALD can be viewed as a research network in addition to a project with its own objectives and work program. This list below of existing and some key previous projects is updated when new projects are granted funding.
