Location and sponsors
The JGOFS International Project Office was located at the University of Bergen, Norway, between January 1996 and December 2003. This office was sponsored by the Research Council of Norway and the University of Bergen.
Offices for the JGOFS International Project Office in Bergen are provided by the Centre for Studies of Environment and Resources (Senter for Miljų- og Ressursstudier, SMR) located in the former Bergen-Tidende building. SMR was established by the Senate of the University of Bergen in 1989 to serve as an interdisciplinary and interfaculty centre. The aim of the Centre is to stimulate and co-ordinate research and education for environment and resource problems of national and international relevance.
The responsibility of the International Project Office (IPO) is to assist the JGOFS Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) in planning and carrying out its Terms of Reference. It also serves as a much-needed channel of communication between scientists working in different countries on various aspects of global change research. Other important tasks of the IPO are: (1) to assist the SSC in collating information on national and regional programmes of global change research relating to the project and (2) to ensure that there is no unnecessary duplication of effort and that the project makes effective use of existing knowledge in its analysis of processes and change at global scales.
