The aim of NCoE Tundra is to find methods to preserve arctic-alpine biota in a warmer climate. The idea is to use herbivorous mammals to control the expansion of woody vegetation.
Nordic Centre of Excellence (NCoE) NORD-STAR aims to develop tools to help the Nordic countries address the twin challenge of a warmer climate and the side effects of policy impacts.
NCoE NorMER - The Nordic Centre for Research on Marine Ecosystems and Resources under Climate Change
The Nordic Centre for Research on Marine Ecosystems and Resources under Climate Change (NCoE NorMER) builds a unique, cross-disciplinary framework for evaluating effects of climate change on Nordic marine ecosystems, with a particular focus on Atlantic cod.
Focus: Reduce the uncertainty in measurement and estimation of current and future volume changes of land ice in the North-Atlantic Region, Greenland, Iceland, Scandinavia and Svalbard.
Objectives: To identify and quantify the major processes controlling Arctic warming and related feedback mechanisms, outline strategies to mitigate Arctic warming, and develop Nordic Earth System modelling. The focus is on short-lived climate forcers (SLCF), including natural and anthropogenic aerosols.
Goal: Gathers internationally recognized experts with the goal of understanding how changes in the cryosphere caused by climate change influence the ecosystem/geosphere processes which directly affect climate.
Objective: To carry out the research and development necessary to form the foundation for future commercialisation of a new type of paper-based, environment-friendly supercapacitors and battery.
Objective: To improve the lifetime and increase the durability of solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) systems by the use of nano-coatings.
Aim: To develop sustainable and efficient methods based on nanotechnology to reduce problems and costs with ice build-up.
A consortium focusing on finding the most energy efficient semiconductor nanowire solar cells with an optimum design solution for low cost.
Objective: To address cold climate aspects and include the production of icing atlas for Sweden and Iceland based on long term meteorological statistics.
Overall objective: To identify and pursue solutions to offshore HVDC grids and their functionality as means of integrating large amounts of offshore wind power.
The OSRNordic project has proposed novel methods for optimizing the spinning reserve level in the power transmission systems where a large wind power penetration level is expected.
Production of second-generation bio-fuel and its influence on engine combustion and emissions
High gravity hydrolysis and fermentation of lignocellulosic material for production of bio-fuels
A virtual Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) networking platform aiming for increased CCS deployment in the five Nordic countries.
The objective of this study was to give an overview of the potential for applying CCS in the Nordic countries.
