A short film introducing Bergen forskningsstiftelse, Bergen Research Foundation, founded in 2004 by means of a NOK 250 million donation (approx. USD 30 million) from Trond Mohn. Prior to this Mr Mohn had for many years donated large sums to a variety of sporting and humanitarian causes – but this was his first major contribution to the field of research. The foundation gives grants toward research and research supporting activities at the University of Bergen and Haukeland University Hospital. It also gives grants to support research at the University of Bergen and Haukeland University Hospital at the interface between basic research and clinical research. The video showcases three researchers that explore the fields of Informatics, Climate Change and Cancer Research.
