The Joint Nordic Neutron Science Programme focuses on competence-building in the field of neutron science. The programme is now issuing its first call for proposals, “Capacity-building projects”, under which a total of NOK 10 million is available for allocation to Nordic researchers. The application deadline is 3 February 2016.
Det nordiske forskersamfund har muligheden for at indtage første parket, når European Spallation Source (ESS) indvies i 2023. Men vi må være godt fagligt forberedt, hvis vi skal kunne udnytte de unikke muligheder, forskningsinfrastrukturen til knap 20 milliarder danske kroner i Lund giver. Derfor har NordForsk startet et nordisk program for neutronforskning, som lægger vægt på opbygning af kompetencer.
The Centre of Excellence for Resources, Extractive Industries and Sustainable Arctic Communities (REXSAC) is a Nordforsk Center of Excellence hosted by KTH Royal Institute of Technology, in collaboration with Stockholm University, the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), and a number of additional partners.
Loss of sea ice is particularly relevant, with a direct and immediate effect on Arctic communities, in the form of potential increased shipping (and attendant risks) as well as the complex issues involved in Arctic oil and gas exploration, together with effects on fisheries and marine mammals. The project will address these issues by focusing on changes that will happen in the near future, with the overarching goal of fostering responsible and sustainable development.
