NINA er et nasjonalt og internasjonalt kompetansesenter innen naturforskning. Vår kompetanse utøves gjennom forskning, overvåking og konsekvensutredninger. Vårt overordnede mål er at NINA skal være en livskraftig kunnskapsbedrift og en aktiv samfunnsaktør. NINAs primære aktivitet er å drive anvendt forskning. Stikkord for forskningen er kvalitet og relevans, samarbeid med andre institusjoner, tverrfaglighet og økosystemtilnærming. Offentlig forvaltning, næringsliv og industri, samt Norges forskningsråd og EU, er blant NINAs oppdragsgivere og finansieringskilder. Virksomheten er hovedsakelig rettet mot forskning på natur og samfunn. NINA leverer et bredt spekter av tjenester gjennom forskningsprosjekter, miljøovervåking, utredninger og rådgiving. I tillegg til utbredt prosjektvirksomhet i Norge samarbeider NINAs høyt kvalifiserte stab med institusjoner i mer enn 30 land i Europa, Afrika, Asia og Amerika.
