Reindeer husbandry in a Globalizing North - resilience, adaptations and pathways for actions (NCoE ReiGN)

Climate change is penetrating all biological processes and production systems in the Arctic. Increased accessibility of its natural resources is transforming the region into an important player in the global economy. This will change the livelihood of northern people who depend on the land.

Arctic Climate Predictions: Pathways to Resilient, Sustainable Societies (ARCPATH)

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.

Climate-change effects on the epidemiology of infectious diseases and the impacts on Northern Societies (CLINF)

Climate change is first and foremost felt in the northern regions where the rate and magnitude are the greatest. What happens in the Arctic will impact the rest of the world. In a changing climate, ecological alterations will affect the geographical boundaries of microorganisms with the capacity to cause diseases in humans and animals.

Taking surveillance apart?: Accountability and Legitimacy of Internet Surveillance and Expanded Investigatory Powers

Taking surveillance apart, will produce a deeper understanding of the legal provisions for the powers of intelligence and law enforcement agencies to monitor online communications data, and how surveillance, data collection and analysis is (or will be) regulated. The project will identify how the major stakeholders in the debate over surveillance powers articulate and justify their position. The project will also focus on citizens’ online behaviour and their perceptions of surveillance and privacy. It will investigate the accountability and legitimacy of the existing and planned legislation and expanded powers for internet surveillance. A gap between citizens’ and authorities’ expectations and understandings could have unfortunate consequences. This project and its findings will enhance the integrity of the services and authorities involved.

Enablement besides Constraints: Human security and a Cyber Multi-disciplinary framework in the European High North (ECoHuCy)

The project examines digitisation and cyber security in the European High North (EHN) referring to the northern parts of three Nordic countries: Finland, Sweden and Norway from the human security perspective. The overall research task consists of individualizing and explaining cyber security when it comes to mitigating threats but also to empowering both individuals and communities in EHN to cope with new, ICT-related socio-politico-legal, cultural, economic and environmental challenges.

Governance of Health Data in Cyberspace

The central aim of this project is to develop recommendations for resilient governance mechanisms for health cyberspace that can meet social expectations regarding the security and privacy of health data, while enabling broad use of health data to benefit society. We will apply the theoretical lens of contextual integrity, and review current approaches to governance across other sectors, along with the ethical issues that arise with online data.

Symptom monitoring after hospitalisation in patients with advanced heart failure - a Nordic-Baltic study

The overall aim of this project is to develop a new approach to monitoring symptom and signs combining self-assessment tools and a non-invasive monitoring device (micro-Cor system) and to determine the effect of this approach in patients’ advanced HF. The primary outcome is cardiovascular readmission within 30-day readmission. Secondary outcomes include readmission and death for all-cause within 6 months, hospital days, emergency department (ED) visits, unplanned clinic visits, hospital cost, and self-care behavior.

Nordic Occupational Register – a tool for estimation of the potential of workplace and population level interventions

The general aim of the study is to build up a Nordic Occupational Register, which will include data on work disability, presenteeism, physical and psychosocial exposures and working life expectancy. The Register will allow the estimation of the potential of work-targeted interventions to reduce work disability and enhance work participation. All information will be registered by gender and occupation or occupational group. Another objective is to utilize the constructed register to assess the effectiveness of interventions targeted at increasing work participation at population level.
