The Fridtjof Nansen Institute (FNI) is an independent foundation engaged in research on international environmental, energy and resource management politics and law.
It is located in the former home of Fridtjof Nansen, who is buried in the garden of the house at his request. When I was passing through Oslo during the TOUR, I had the opportunity to visit the institute, which houses Nansen’s study in its original state, as well as his library. The rest of the house now houses the Institute’s offices and their library and publications.
Even though Nansen is often more famous in the general public for his expeditions, it becomes particularly clear here that his journeys were not about adventure, but about science and research.
