In collaboration with the Norwegian Research Council, the Peder Sather Center for Advanced Study enables UC Berkeley faculty to conduct exploratory and cutting-edge research in tandem with leading researchers from eight Norwegian higher education institutions.

The primary mission of the Peder Sather Center for Advanced Study is to strengthen and foster research collaborations between faculty at UC Berkeley and a consortium of Norwegian academic institutions.

In collaboration with the Norwegian Research Council, the Center enables UC Berkeley faculty to conduct exploratory and cutting-edge research in tandem with leading researchers from the eight Norwegian higher education institutions: Norwegian Business School, Norwegian School of Economics, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, University of Agder, University of Bergen, University of Oslo, University of Stavanger, and the University of TromsΓΈ.

The Center selects projects for support and also serves as an administrative hub for these partnerships. In addition, the Peder Sather Center supports workshops, mini-conferences, virtual intellectual exchanges, graduate student exchanges, postdoctoral fellow exchanges, and exploratory and pilot studies, as well as core research activities, such as data collection and analysis.
