Societal change is accelerating through continued rapid population growth and significant changes in demographics, technological advances, and increasing interconnectedness between various infrastructures. Together with climate change and a new global security situation these trends will inevitably lead to a change in the risk landscape. One of the key actors that has to deal with such change is the Fire and Rescue Services. These organisations are both governed by, and dependent on, formal and informal networks.
Nordic-Russian call for use of scientific, traditional and local knowledge to support communities and their livelihoods in the Arctic – feasibility study for co-production between researchers and local indigenous communities
The Nordic region is a world leader in digitalisation, also in the area known as the Internet of Things. This gives us a unique opportunity to promote sustainability and a circular economy, according to the authors of a new report.
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.
Five Nordic research projects on COVID-19 are now being launched. The projects will take advantage of the Nordic countries’ unique health data to advance the knowledge base about COVID-19 for the benefit of the Nordic region and the entire world.
Based on an initiative from the deans of the Nordic medical schools, the Joint Committee of the Nordic Medical Research Councils (NOS-M) has decided to fund a Nordic online course for medical students in personalised medicine.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is generating a widespread need for new knowledge relating to the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Four new collaborative projects will now use health data to learn more about the virus.
