The 3M network aims to develop a new and innovative research platform for examining relations and tensions between identity, multilingualism and multiculturalism in Nordic and Baltic countries.
This project aims to generate knowledge on how to innovate new services, media and infrastructure in Living Labs in Denmark, Norway and Sweden, building on and improving the work of existing Living Labs.
A Nordic Rheumatology Register Pilot to facilitate collaborative studies based on linkages of clinical data with national health
The objective of this proposal is to pilot different technical solutions to enable Nordic collaborative research based on linkage of clinical registers to national health- and socio-economy registers. Chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and spondylarthritis confer substantial individual suffering and significant economic burdens to health care and society, and exemplify the increasing challenges for welfare societies through rapid introduction of targeted therapies for diseases characterized by high costs and uncertain optimal treatment. To address these challenges, sufficiently large study populations combined with clinical detail are needed, calling for novel research infrastructures.
This "Smart City"-project will exchange, analyze and disseminate existing national/local Smart City Living Lab pilot initiatives in the areas of energy saving and intelligent transportation, with the aim of successfully implementating a Nordic best-practice Smart City Living Lab pilot.
ActivABLES investigates how to better support the continuation of rehabilitation and achieve its benefits.
Adult Life after Childhood Cancer in Scandinavia (ALiCCS): Socioeconomic consequences of long-term survival.
The project wants to strengthen the scientific Nordic collaboration and research infrastructure within the research area of socioeconomic consequences of long-term survival of childhood cancer. Knowledge of such late effects in childhood cancer survivors is highly requested by the survivors and their families.
This summer school aims to provide an introduction of the science around the upcoming ultra-brilliant, coherent and fs pulsed X-ray and Free Electron Laser sources currently operating or in constructions.
This project will follow the development of Diabetic Nephropathy (DN), aiming to develop a new measurement for DN that can predict a patient’s outcome at an earlier stage. A better understanding can lead to new treatment opportunities.
BIOWATER will serve as the first Nordic science center and platform that provides solutions for land, environmental and water resources management in the face of potential and competing demands for biomass, land and water resources related to the green shift and concurrent bio-economic development.
This researcher network will coordinate activities within heterogeneous catalysis research in Scandinavia. The development and synthesis of new technical catalysis are highly multidisciplinary in character and the interplay between many disciplines is decisive for understanding catalysis on the atomic scale as well as developing new catalyst on a rational basis of fundamental insight.
An open access, generic ePlatform for environmental model-building at the river-basin scale (Machu-Picchu)
The Machu-Picchu project is developing eInfrastructure for better predictions of water quality and quantity.
The purpose of this network is to promote mobility and cooperation between analysts in the Nordic countries.
The Research Training Course “Analytic and Continental Social Philosophy” is designed to update the knowledge of the Baltic and Nordic researchers and PhD students in continental and analytic social and political philosophy. The course aims to enhance the methods and skills of the researchers to the level required at the cutting edge of international philosophical research.
Applied methodologies for improved exchange between atmospheric e-science Infrastructures at high latitudes
This project aims to teach next generation of scientists to integrate different eScience tools and infrastructures to achieve a more holistic interpretation of the climate system and its components. This initiative will make use of existing infrastructures, such as model and observational data evaluation portals, atmospheric data bases, visualization tools and data analysis and statistical tools.
Arctic char; A species under threat and with great potentials in the age of climate change (NORDCHAR)
The Arctic char is a species under threat, well suited to be used as a model species for monitoring changes in the Nordic areas due to climate change. The NORDCHAR project focusses on both threats and opportunities involved in climate changes.
The Arctic is of fundamental importance in the climate system because of the important atmospheric and oceanic feedbacks that occur here. Added to this, global warming has caused intense changes in Arctic climate, with a rise in temperatures during recent years that is close to twice that of other regions. These rapid changes are a challenge to communities already at risk from many other aspects that have to do with society as whole, in particular with regard to economic and political factors, as well as climatic effects.
This winter school on Atmosphere-Biosphere-Cryosphere Interactions will be given as a two-week intensive research course in March 2012. The course involves thorough introduction to the measurements at several Nordic and Arctic stations as well as analysis of the data produced at the stations.
