Three projects funded within “Impacts of Climate Change in Nordic Primary Industries”

Three projects will be funded within the first call of the programme “Climate Change Impacts, Adaptation and Mitigation in Nordic Primary Industries”. The networks cover distinct and specific themes on effects and precautions in production systems within cereal production, fishery and carbon storage in terrestrial ecosystems.
The committee of this climate programme decided to fund three of thirteen applications. Each network will receive a grant of 3.28 million NOK, utilising 60% of the funds.

The results produced by the networks will be utilised by the committee in order to provide recommendations for a climate policy within primary industries in the Nordic region.

The funded networks are:

Forest Soil C Sink Nordic Network
Project leader: Per Gundersen
Forest and Landscape, Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Copenhagen

Sustainable Primary Production in a Changing Climate
Project leader: Rikke Bagger Jørgensen
Biosystems Division, Risø National Laboratory, Technical University of Denmark, Denmark

Nordic Network: Climate Impacts on Fish, Fishery Industry and Management in the Nordic Seas
Project leader: Jan Erik Stiansen
Institute of Marine Research, Bergen
