CIPR
Mission statement
Our mission is to continue being an
international leading centre for
developing fundamental knowledge
aimed at maximizing recovery and
increasing recoverable reserves in
existing oil and gas fields.
Main challenges
Integration of disciplinary
subsurface petroleum research is
the key fundament of CIPR, and
crucial to fulfilling our mission.

Renewable energy and CCS
Interdisciplinary focus on
energy research and
education
UiB has expertise that can contribute to finding solutions.
One of the major global challenges of our society
is related to the need for sustainable and
secure energy. Research and education
across disciplines is important in order
to meet future energy needs.
- Wind power
- CO2 storage
- Geothermal
- Bio fuels
- Tidal waves and currents
- Fuel cells
- Solar power

FACULTY OF MATHEMATICS AND NATURAL SCIENCES
The PhD-program:
• The faculty offers one PhD-program
• Students are admitted on the basis of a Norwegian
Master’s degree or equivalent education
• To be admitted the student needs to be financed
through scholarships or announced PhD-positions
• PhD-positions are three years (project financed) or
four years (University financed)
• Enrolment at the department
• Training component consists of minimum 30 credits
