The Research Council of Norway has announced a $2 million investment into a 5-year research project to accelerate the research development of the “Future of Food” including cultivated meat and fermentation. This project, Arrival of Cellular Agriculture-Enabling Biotechnology for Future Food Production (ARRIVAL), will be led by the Norwegian Institute of Food, Fisheries, and Aquaculture Research (Nofima) and involve organizations including the Olsa Metropolitan University, the Norwegian Institute for Rural Research, and the Norwegian Board for Technology.
“We can increase self-sufficiency in food in Norway, and we do not have to kill animals to produce the necessary protein in the form of meat. In Norway, we have both the expertise and the money needed to develop new technical solutions for food production.” - Sissel Rønning, the ARRIVAL lead.
