NILU - Norsk institutt for luftforskning er en uavhengig stiftelse etablert i 1969.

NILUs forskning har som formål å øke forståelsen for prosesser og effekter knyttet til klimaendringer, atmosfærens sammensetning, luftkvalitet og miljøgifter.

På bakgrunn av forskningen leverer NILU integrerte tjenester og produkter innenfor analyse, overvåkning og rådgivning. NILU er opptatt av å opplyse og gi råd til samfunnet om klimaendringer og forurensning og konsekvensene av dette.

NILU har en sterk posisjon nasjonalt og internasjonalt, og er blant de ledende fagmiljøer i verden innenfor flere av sine fagfelt.
