The scientific and university department of the French Institute of Norway encourages and supports academic cooperation between French and Norwegian institutions. The Campus France agency supports the department in strengthening French-Norwegian cooperation.

The mission of supporting university cooperation is based on different axes:

  • Support for the organisation of French-Norwegian or French-Nordic conferences and events,
  • Help in welcoming and organising visits of delegations,
  • Participation in student forums and fairs.



European universities are a new type of cooperation. They are based on transnational alliances of higher education institutions from all over the European Union. The institutions involved in this cooperation join forces in the interests of students, teachers and society.

The main goals of these alliances are to promote common European values as well as to improve the quality of higher education. Among the 41 European university alliances, 4 of these alliances include French and Norwegian higher education institutions.
