The findings from the biggest Nordic research cooperation programme to date were presented in Stockholm on November 18 at the closing conference of the Nordic Top-level Research Initiative. Focusing on climate change, the initiative points to a range of solutions aimed both at reducing the magnitude of climate change and at adapting to its inevitable consequences. We have taken a look at some of these new Nordic climate solutions.
Young scientists, PhDs and postdoctoral research associates have been instrumental in the scientific work conducted within NorMER, a Nordic research project on marine ecosystems funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Top-level Research Initiative. According to Scientific Director Jason D. Whittington, Nordic co-operation provides these early-carrier researchers with exceptional insights into interdisciplinary research on climate change.
As the Top-level Research Initiative, the largest joint Nordic research initiative to date, is coming to an end, NordForsk, Nordic Energy Research and Nordic Innovation are launching a new collaboration on green growth. It will focus research on societal transformations and sustainable energy development, and promote commercially viable innovation.
