However, in order to secure the number of doctoral graduates for the sector and the industry, the government wants the secor to educate 60% more graduates than today.

Norway‘s government plans to increase the level of research and accordingly wants to create 1600 more research student positions at universities and colleges over the coming five years. This will result in 5000 research student positions in the sector.

Furthermore the government wants to graduate 1100 doctoral students per year, which means an increase of 60% compared to today‘s situation. This will bring Norway to the same level as its fellow Nordic countries.
