Circular Economy (CE) is a promising approach towards maximizing value by increasing resource productivity, enhancing energy efficiency, lowering resource consumption and decreasing waste. By transitioning to a CE, Nordic Industry as a whole can pave the way for modern sustainability thinking and establish itself as benchmark in the field, whilst also enhancing its position in the highly competitive international market.
NordForsk has decided to fund four postdoctoral research fellowships for young researchers in Denmark and Sweden within the Nordic Neutron Science Programme. The projects will receive a total of 6 million NOK.
We follow the principles of “Integrative Social Robotics,” a strictly value-oriented approach, and for this reason focus on the use of robots as facilitators of human social interactions, and not as replacements of human actors.
The studies on the development of children’s language skills and the technology developed in the project are expected to have notable impact, benefiting individuals, businesses and the Nordic societies. Our interdisciplinary research team has background and experience in engineering, cognitive neuroscience, psycholinguistics, speech-language pathology, and language education.
The key breakthrough we aim to accomplish in this project is based on specific advantages of graphene: i) its ability to physically penetrate the bacterial biofilm, and ii) its ability to serve as a loading point for large amounts of hydrophobic drugs.
Developing an older design, this proposal would provide a high flux beam of specially prepared cold i.e. slow neutrons. Using specialist engineering and simulation tools, an instrument providing the highest possible sensitivity for fundamental physics experiments.
