NordForsk is issuing a call for proposals for Nordic-Russian networks for risk and crisis management. The call has a total budget of approximately NOK 6 million, and the deadline for the call for proposals is 15 September 2021.
In this project we will use Artificial Intelligence (AI) and statistical models to aid the transition from a human experience-based management of RAS production to a knowledge-based automatic one. Feed management, feeding and feed waste is a major challenge to production. In marine aquaculture, video systems are widely used to observe the fish.
The Nordic and Baltic countries are boosting research in aquaculture with nine new research projects. Among other things, the projects are to develop sustainable feed for salmon farming. The Director of NordForsk says this is an important step along the Nordic region’s path of becoming the world’s most sustainable region by 2030.
The CDI-NANO-RAS project aims at testing novel technologies for the control of off chemicals in RAS as well as purging systems. We hypothesise that the combined use of novel capacitive deionization (CDI) technology and photocatalytic nanotechnological surface coatings can provide an energetically efficient method for the control of off-taste development in RAS as well as in reducing the duration and water usage in pre-harvest purging. The overall aim is to develop cost effective solutions applicable for the modern RAS industry.
For the first time, NordForsk has begun funding projects under its Programme for Interdisciplinary Research. With a total budget of roughly NOK 176 million, the programme spans a wide range of research topics, from narwhal tusks to smart textiles to historical perspectives on pandemics.
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 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.
