The NORDSATSING initiative invites you to an Arctic Frontiers side-event:
Arctic Opportunities - Research and Technology for Industry in the North
In our presentations we will focus on topics relevant for business and industry in the High North, such as:
- Technologies for cold climate: What's new in winterization of concrete?
- Environmental waste management: What are new solutions for handling of hazardous waste?
- Drones and Arctic earth observation: How can drones be used for inspection?
- Technology transfer and technology management: How is technology management different from other management styles?
Presentations will focus on results and opportunities for businesses. You are welcome to informal discussions with the researchers, regarding upcoming results, needs for expertise or possible areas of collaboration. The event will also provide an opportunity for preliminary discussions of ideas.
The NORDSATSING initiative is a research program aimed at building research capacity in the north in areas relevant for industry. NORDSATSING is funded by the Ministry of Local Government and Modernisation and organised by the Research Council of Norway. The program has been running since 2010 and has produced interesting results in collaboration with industry representatives in Northern Norway. The contact person for this event in the Research Council of Norway is Anne Solheim.
This event is free of charge for participants. You can register in the Arctic Frontiers registration system at www.arcticfrontiers.com.
