The NordAqua NCoE brings internationally recognized Nordic senior scientists and younger PIs together with experts in industrial biorefinery fields in order to generate a multidisciplinary platform for rapid transition to sustainable blue bioeconomy.
The overall aim of the programme is to produce new knowledge on how to foster and advance the transition to a bio-based economy in the Nordic countries by integrating research, innovation and entrepreneurship in the private and public sectors.
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.
The new strategic narrative of green growth is increasingly adopted by governments across the world in their ambition and plans to green their economies. It allows environmental sustainability to be cast as a question of opportunity, rather than costly restraint. Still, the deliverance of green growth involves a transition where the economic and societal changes required are deep, structural and systemic, rather than marginal.
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.
The overall aim of the ReiGN is to understand how climate change and other processes in the Arctic will affect reindeer husbandry in Fennoscandia and how reindeer husbandry can adapt to these drivers. Fennoscandian reindeer husbandry represents ecological, socio-economical and institutional gradients as reflected in different adaptations and management regimes.
